The basis of many biological processes is written down in the genetic code that is translated into biomolecules that cooperate to create, and various biochemical processes and ultimately life forms. As part of this course molecular genetic processes and biomolecular structure and interactions are studied and discussedin order to enabling detailed studies of life processes and related biotechnological and molecular genetic applications.
