Learning outcomes of the course unit:
In the course the subject is to provide basic information to students necessary for understanding the processes taking place in the living matter, which are usually related to the transmission of electric charges (electric, magnetic, optical phenomena). In the form of laboratory exercises to familiarize them with the work with biological samples and the implementation of electrical and optical measurements on these objects.
|Biological evolution. Biological cell structure, biological importance of cell, organelles. Structure of biological macromolecules: nucleic acids, the nature of the genetic code in cells, genetic engineering; protein; polysaccharides.
