Theory under construction: building and critiquing biological models (EEB 8990.s3)
This is an informal seminar for people to present and get feedback on modeling project that are in progress. See the schedule here.
Meets: Mondays 3-4pm in Ecology 340L and 340Q
Mathematical Modeling of Biological Systems (MATH 2241)
Development, analysis and simulation of models for the dynamics of biological systems. Mathematical topics include discrete and continuous dynamical systems, linear algebra, and probability. Models from fields such as ecology, epidemiology, physiology, genetics, neuroscience, and biochemistry.
This is a new mathematical biology course developed by myself and Duane Nykamp (Mathematics). It is aimed at undergraduate biology majors, and was first offered in Spring 2016.
See the UMN course website here.
See general course content (available outside UMN) here.
Prerequisites: Math 1241 or 1271 or 1371 or equivalent
** This course is open to all students and satisfies the Quantitative Requirement for CBS majors. Email me with any questions.
