Course: Mathematical Biology, Spring 2013
Lectures: MWF 1P-1:50P, KOBL 308
The goal for this class is for students to develop a fundamental understanding of how mathematics is applied as a tool to aid in studying complex systems in the biological sciences. We will thoroughly investigate case studies in several fields including: Molecular Systems Biology, Sea Turtle Ecology, Glucose Metabolism, HIV Pathogenesis, and Microbial Community Dynamics. Graded work will include a mix of theoretical and computational homeworks and short research projects, culminating in a final group project.
All projects are to be contributed to the Mathematical Biology Wiki.
