About the Course

An introduction to dynamical modeling techniques used in contemporary Systems Biology research. We take a case-based approach to teach contemporary mathematical modeling techniques. The course is appropriate for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. Lectures provide biological background and describe the development of both classical mathematical models and more recent representations of biological processes. The course will be useful for students who plan to use experimental techniques as their approach in the laboratory and employ computational modeling as a tool to draw deeper understanding of experiments. The course should also be valuable as an introductory overview for students planning to conduct original research in modeling biological systems. This course focuses on dynamical modeling techniques used in Systems Biology research. These techniques are based on biological mechanisms, and simulations with these models generate predictions that can subsequently be tested experimentally. These testable predictions frequently provide novel insight into biological processes. The approaches taught here can be grouped into the following categories: 1) ordinary differential equation-based models, 2) partial differential equation-based models, and 3) stochastic models....

Interesting subject, I liked the practical approach. The tests are not easy but I liked the homework style approach. It forces you to understand the subject better than the regular quizzes.

New to systems biology and I am really impressed with the clear explanations. Currently, on week 4 but aiming to finish to the end. Thanks to the dude who made it! :) #lifesaver

Nice course thank you! I consider the first assignment is confusing and the descriptions of assignment in general could be improved. Also, I think the predefined ODE solvers must be used from the begining instead of manually implement Euler's method. THANKS!

Very good course. The first 5 weeks are incredible, the last couple weeks are decidedly of a lower quality with no assignments to accompany the material.

Very interesting course: I'm a Computer Engineer and I found very interesting the lessons about bistability and about stochastic modelling.

Very informative course with good exercises. Would recommend having PDE example code, as well.

a little too much for my taste, but I learned a lot cellular biology.
