BIOM20001 Molecular and Cellular Biomedicine

Recommended? Yes

Available as Breadth? No

This is a core subject for Second year of Biomedicine. 25 credit point subject, thus rightfully requires a relatively high level of study.  The topics covered were amazing and really interesting, broken into 5 main topics: Biochemistry, Genetics, Cell Biology, Immunity and Pathology. Each topic has a CAL and accompanying quiz; and at the end of semester, there are two exams. In the first week, Terry Mulhern will hit you with the 20 amino acids (structure and properties) and the 10 steps of glycolysis, 8 steps of Krebs cycle and 5 steps of the electron transport chain… start learning them early, it will really help! Given the double work load, It is really useful if you stay on top of the content and start studying early. Can be an excellent subject affording students with an insight to important and fascinating topics in human biology.
