6180. Computational Foundations of Systems Biology

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: None.

Grading Basis: Graded

Focuses on studying dynamic and intelligent features (e.g., adaptation and robustness) of biological systems such as gene networks. Emphasizes the tools and methods of computational systems biology come from other computation-oriented fields such as computational physics, digital signal processing, control engineering, and digital logic. Programming using MATLAB, LabVIEW, and C# in the context of modeling, analyzing, estimating, and controlling real biological systems. Through a variety of assignments and projects, students will obtain a deeper understanding of physical and engineering principles applied to biological systems. Students will also read and present journal articles on topics covered in class, which will expose them to interdisciplinary research and views.
