Descripción

Learn about the biological and chemical basis of animal life". Biochemistry - Animals" is the knowledge basis for all human and animals health studies. Learn with highly qualified and experienced tutors the basis of life. This course is similar to "Biochemistry - Plants" ; except for the fact that it deals with animals. Some secondary school chemistry will be helpful though it is not essential.
