max. 30 participants
Language: English



Wednesdays 10.00-12.30, Übungsraum 6, UZA1, Section 4, Level 2, Althanstr. 14
First exercise on Mar 6, 2019.


Aims, contents and method of the course

Students are able to explain typical approaches of the quantitative biology and systems biology and are able to design experiments based on these approaches. Students are able to connect data from quantitative biology and systems biology with information from heterogeneous sources of biological data. Students understand fundamental methods of mathematical modeling. Students are able to apply these methods to typical problems in evolutionary systems biology and can interpret the results. This exercise establishes knowledge and practical skills in mathematical modeling of biological systems.
