Individual consultations


In this case, the subject of Biochemistry attempts to solve the extremely difficult problem of life by catalysis of the synthesis of biopolymers. The subject thus forms a link between physical chemistry and biology. The subject fits into the interdisciplinary bachelor's degree with a focus on a specialist in health care facilities.
