Mathematical Modelling of DNA:
General Philosophy of the Course: This course is designed
to be an introduction, within the particular context of DNA, to the interplay
between analysis, computation and experiment that makes up the process
called mathematical modelling. In addition to students whose primary interest
is in DNA, the syllabus is intended for students wishing an introduction
to the modelling process in general, and the course will describe a number
of widely encountered mathematical and computational techniques.
Background prerequisite: The syllabus will assume the mathematical
background of the premier cycle of physics and mathematics syllabus, with
no assumption of previous knowledge of DNA. However accomodation will be
made to provide any missing mathematical background (for example during
exercise sessions) for students with interest in mathematical and computational
modelling who have a relatively stronger background in DNA and a weaker
background in analysis (for example diplome or doctorant students in biology
Credits:The course is a two semester sequence to be given
in the Winter and Summer semesters of the 2001-02 academic year.There will
be separate exams and credits for each of the two semesters.
Course Schedule: Friday, 9:15-11:00 weekly, starting date
October 26th, room MA31, next to the Math Cafeteria on the 3d floor.
Exercises schedule: Wednesdays, 13:15-15:00, biweekly, starting
date October 30th, room MA31, later there will be some computing exercises.
Note that there is another interesting course: Statistics for Microarrays given by Darlene Goldstein.
