Didactic activity


General information:

Biochemistry course covers 2 semester and 150 didactic hours.

Frontal lectures (30 h per semester) are in weekly intervals during 15 consecutive weeks 2 h each and cover selected topics necessary to understand metabolism of aminoacids, nucleic acids, sugars and lipids. Moreover, the control and regulation of metabolic pathways is discussed.


Practical classes (45 h per semester) are obligatory and are in weekly intervals during 15 consecutive weeks 3 h each. Students carry on chemical experiments by their own. Students should be prepared for coming class.

Detailed rules of laboratory classes and work safety are available on web page and will be described during the first class. White coat is required for practical classes.


Students get access to digital platform with virtual cases for self-study.


Detailed description of topics is available in Syllabuses.


Lectures are held in Lecture hall A – Collegium Veterinarium

Practicals are held in laboratory no 120 – Collegium Veterinarium
