03-312: Introduction to Computational Biological Modeling and Imaging
This course presents both the theoretical underpinnings of computational methods relevant to cell biology and practical training in using these methods and the data resources to which they can be applied. It is intended for students without computer programming experience. Topics included are bioimage processing and analysis, automated analysis and modeling of microscope images, mathematical methods used for biological modeling, basic computational models of population dynamics, neuronal signaling, biochemical reactions and drug metabolism, and cell simulations. Course work consists primarily of homework assignments making use of online resources for these applications. Students may not get credit for both 03-310 and 03-311 or 03-312.
