BIOL 39906 - Computational Biology

Course Credit: 1
This course focuses on core concepts in mathematical and computational modeling of complex biological processes. Specific topics include modeling of molecular networks, cellwide processes such as metabolism, physiological processes, pattern formation and population dynamics. A key objective of the course is to showcase the power of, and need for theoretical and computational approaches in biological and biomedical research. The course will include student-led investigations of current primary literature, and the use of computational models to gain insight into the dynamics of complex biological processes at multiple scales. Computer programming skills are not a pre-requisite. Three hours of lecture a week. Prerequisite(s): BIOL 20100 , minimum grade C-, and 1 BIOL 30500 , BIOL 30600 , BIOL 30700 , BIOL 33500 , BIOL 36600 , BIOL 37700 , BIOL 38000 , or IDPT 20013 .
