2020: Chromosome Conformation and Dynamics [MATH891.004]


Course title: Chromosome Conformation and Dynamics
Course Offering: MATH 891.004
Instructors: Greg Forest, David Adalsteinsson, Kerry Bloom, Josh Lawrimore, Yunyan He, Ben Walker
Course description: The objectives of this course are to: Develop mathematical models of an entire eukaryotic genome in a living cell; Extract quantitative data from the models and experimental systems to tune model parameters; Discuss the power of mathematical modeling in guiding intuition at the nano to micron scales; Discuss future avenues such as network analysis and fluid dynamics to explore pathways of information flow in a living cell. Student projects will be finalized by Class 3, then developed with 2 weeks between classes until final project presentations on Class 6.
 Prerequisites: Current enrollment in graduate program of any participating Department in the NIH T32 BD2K graduate training program
