Biochemistry 1 (Animal) BSC103 focuses on the biochemistry of humans and animals.

Biochemistry is an integral part of all human and animals health studies.

Learn with highly qualified and experienced tutors the basis of life while studying in your own home.

To help you get the most out of the course you are first lead through the fundamentals of chemistry including atomic structure, the periodic table, molecules, nomenclature, organic chemistry and more before investigating common organic compounds such as carbohydrates, lipids and more.
Lessons cover: introduction to biochemistry, lipids, proteins, enzymes, nucleic acids, thermo regulation, carbohydrate metabolism, absorption, acidity, alkalinity, chemical analysis, and industry applications.

Prerequisite: Some secondary school chemistry will be helpful though it is not essential.
