Course ContentCompletion of an academic master degree does not only imply practical
experience and knowledge from a scientific specialization, but also that

literature about a given topic in theoretical biochemistry, usually a
topic of direct interest to the research group. The literature
information is described and discussed in a coherent form in a thesis,
which is also presented orally during a colloquium.
The content of the literature thesis will depend on the involved thesis
supervisor and the available topics.
