Syllabus and Schedule (PDF)

Computational modeling is an emerging tool for biological research. In this course, students will learn how this tool can be used to help biological research. By the end of the course, the students are expected to gain insights into when and how to apply the modeling tool to help with their ongoing projects. 

This course will provide the students an opportunity to learn different tools of systems biology by reading and presenting published papers in the field. Also, the students will gain some hands‐on experience by reproducing some figures that are published in these papers.
