|Course title||Particle Tracking and Applications to Microrheology, Virology, Molecular Cell Biology, and Lung Biomedicine|
|Course Offering:||MATH 891.005|
|Instructors:||Greg Forest, Amy Gladfelter, Sam Lai, David Hill, Matt Markovetz, Kate Daftari, Neall Caughmann, Katie Slyman, Andrew Ford|
|Course description:||Topics covered include: transport properties of biological fluids and of particles in them, particle tracking experiments, fluorescence microscopy, particle tracking analysis, inferences from tracking data, MD simulations of particles in soft matter. There will be “hands on” modeling and analysis of experimental data and virtual simulated datasets to mimic experimental data and validate inferred properties from PT data. Student projects will be finalized by Class 3 or 4, then developed with 2 weeks between classes until final project presentations on Class 7. Projects can be individual or team.
