Msc Study Track in Biochemistry
The program in the biochemistry track is intended for students studying for a master's degree in one of the departments of the Faculty of Life Sciences.
All the required courses in the track will be given in English.
The study program involves 30 semester hours of required and elective courses, carrying out research work, submitting a thesis and passing a final examination.
1. Required faculty courses - 10 s/h
Safety in the Laboratory course (during the first year of studies) – no credit
Research Group Seminar – 2 s/h
Departmental seminar for MSc students – each student will participate in the seminar given by the Department in which he/she performs his/her research – 2 s/h each year
One of the courses:
2. Required track courses:
Students must take 8 s/h from the following list of courses:
|0421.3816||Introduction to Structural Biology||4 s/h|
|0421.4129||Advanced Molecular Biology||3 s/h|
|0421.3814||Mechanisms of Enzymatic Catalysis||3 s/h|
|0421.4130||Molecular Biology of Membranes||2 s/h|
|0421.3815||Modeling of Biological Networks - not given in 2021/2022||3 s/h|
|0421.3811||Selected Chapters in Cancer Biology||2 s/h|
|0455.3236||Structure and function prediction in proteins||3 s/h|
* Neither structural biology course is dependent on the other one.
Medical science courses can be found in the medical science yedion (courses beginning with the digits 01).
Basket of elective courses
(from among the Graduate School courses and third-year undergraduate courses)
To make up the total hours for the degree (30 semester hours), courses can be taken from the third year (undergraduate degree, up to 25% of the total credit points), from other tracks in the Graduate School, or from other faculties in fields related to life sciences (medicine, exact sciences). For courses that are not related to life sciences, maximum credit of 4 s/h will be given.
Below are a number of recommended courses:
|0455.3798||Molecular signals in processes of division, differentiation and apoptosis|
|0351.4125||Methods and Concepts in Chemical Biology|
|0455.3051||Endocrinological control - not given in 2021/2022|
|0455.2566||Laboratory in molecular biology of the cell|
|0452.3117||Methods in cellular and molecular biology|
|0141.2007||Selected topics in molecular cell biology|
|0455.2557||Metabolism: Physiologyand Pathology|
Students who plan to work with lab animals as part of their MSc research must take the course "Principles of using lab animals in biomedical research", given by the medicine faculty (2 s/h).
Continuation from year 1 to year 2 is dependent on the student achieving a passing grade in all required subjects, and a weighted grade of 75 or above.
