Everything you need to know about Biochemistry in your 2nd year of university
This document gives lecture notes on the essentials of clinical biochemistry using a clinical approach. It provides the foundation on how the disease is understood at a molecular level. In order to accomplish this, the student will learn how large molecules are synthesized and used (DNA, RNA, and proteins), and how energy is generated, stored, and retrieved (metabolism). Once these basic concepts are understood, it will be straightforward to understand how alterations in the basic processes can lead to a disease state.
