300332 UE Practial Course in Modelling and Systems Biology (2021S)

5.00 ECTS (3.00 SWS), SPL 30 - Biologie
Continuous assessment of course work


Note: The time of your registration within the registration period has no effect on the allocation of places (no first come, first served).


max. 30 participants
Language: English



The UE will be held digitally. UE meeings will be weekly Wednesdays 14.00-16.00. Attendance is mandatory.


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.
