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.
