BCB420 - Computational Systems Biology

Goals, Audience and Prerequisites
This course is an introduction to current concepts in computational systems biology - analysing the results of large scale, cross-sectional experiments on living cells, modelling the composition and connections of their constituent systems, and prediction of function and phenotypes. BCB420 is one of the required courses in the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Specialist Program, but the course is also open to interested 4th. year majors and specialists in life-science POSts. The prerequisites include one advanced course in molecular biology or genetics and one introductory course in bioinformatics or genomics. Alternative preparation is possible and may be considered on a case-by-case basis. (Posted prerequisites will be waived by the coordinator accordingly).
