BI7613 Introduction to Systems Biology

Credits: 3.00

This course explains the functioning of basic circuit elements in transcription regulation, signal transduction and developmental networks of living cells, using simplified mathematical models. The course focuses on design principles and information processing in biological circuits. It discusses network motifs, modularity, robustness, evolutional optimization and error minimization by kinetic proofreading in specific applications to bacterial chemotaxis, developmental patterning, neuronal circuits and immune recognition in several well-studied biological systems.

Prerequisites: Bioinformatics II
