BCBP 6650 - The Biology of Systems

This course is designed to be a first course in the study of “systems biology”, to introduce students to the field, the experimental and computational methods that are used within it, and the type of insights that the field can provide to biology. To fully appreciate the complexity of living systems, researchers gather systematic, quantitative measurements of a system’s components using cutting-edge omics techniques. In addition, researchers also leverage computing power to describe, model, and predict dynamic behaviors that could otherwise not be perceived in such large scale omics data. Along with these topics, students will learn to critically read current scientific literature. A student cannot get credit for both BCBP/BIOL 4660 and BCBP/BIOL 6650.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: BIOL 4620 Molecular Biology I and BCBP 4670 Molecular Biochemistry I or permission of the instructor.

When Offered: Spring term annually.

Cross Listed: BIOL 4660, BCBP 4660, BIOL 6660.

Credit Hours: 4
