BIOL 282 - Dynamics of Biological Systems


Credits: 4
Planned Offering: Fall

Prerequisite: MATH 101, BIOL 111/113, or instructor consent. This course discusses how biological systems, ranging from single cells to entire human populations, change over time. Students learn to describe a biological system quantitatively, create a model of the system’s dynamics, and make testable predictions. Topics covered include, but are not limited to, cell metabolism, scaling laws for biological systems, population dynamics, and epidemiological modeling. Students learn how to develop and analyze their own models in the lab component of this course where all necessary mathematical and programming background are developed as needed.  Laboratory course.
