Mathematical Methods for Engineers





Method and Logic in Systems Biology

This course is based on reading and discussing primary literature that exemplifies approaches that have revealed new concepts and principles governing biological systems. Special emphasis will be placed on difficulties that lie at the interface of theory and experiment in bioengineering and systems biology. Each week, the students will read and discuss two important papers, and the majority of the class time will be devoted to student discussions rather than to formal lectures. Topics include: cooperativity, robust adaptation, kinetic proofreading, sequence analysis, clustering, network analysis, dynamical systems, and biological design principles.
