Course Objective

To teach about basic information about the metabolism, function and structure of biomolecules that are building the primary structure of human body and to educate nurses and midwives who can use this theoric information in nursery and midwifery practice.

Course Content

Introduction to biochemistry. Chemical composition of human body. Biochemical structure of cell and organelles. Structures and biological functions of carbonhydrates, lipids, aminoacids, proteins, porphyrins, enzymes, vitamins, nucleic acids and hormones. Metabolisms of water and electrolytes, carbonhydrates, lipids, aminoacids,nucleic acids and proteins.
