• Learn and practice 50 important genetic metabolic disorders caused by enzyme defects. • The app is divided into 4 sections: Introduction, Learning unit, Pairs Quiz, Test questions. • In the introduction important terms are briefly explained. • The learning unit contains detailed information on 50 genetic metabolic disorders. The information includes the name and EC number of the defect enzyme, a description of the underlying reaction type and the name of the metabolic pathway in which the enzyme is involved. Further information is the ICD-10 number, the disease frequency and a short description of the pathophysiology of the disease. • The quiz allows you to learn related terms by turning over pairs of matching cards. • You may test your knowledge with the question unit. • The target group of the app are students of biochemistry and medicine as well as scientifically interested high school students. Features • Learn ICD-10 codes and the pathophysiology of 50 important genetic metabolic disorders. • Learn the names, EC numbers, reaction types and metabolic pathways of the enzymes whose defects cause metabolic disorders. • It is possible to learn the information about a metabolic disorder by uncovering individual learning cards step by step or all at once. • In the introduction important terms such as ICD-10, enzymes, rare diseases, enzyme classifications, enzyme defects, heredity, and metabolic pathways are explained. • The quiz is similar to matching pairs game, you can choose from 5 different pairs: Enzyme vs EC Number, Disease vs EC Number, Enzyme vs Disease, ICD-10 vs Disease and ICD-10 vs Enzyme. • The number of cards can be set in steps of 2, from a minimum of 4 to a maximum of 14. • The pairs are selected randomly. • You may test your knowledge by answering randomly generated questions. • The questions are automatically generated based on the complete content of the learning unit. • No registration is required. • No telemetry data are recorded!
