MATH 110 - Diving into Research : The Mathematics Behind Gene Regulation

This course will introduce the idea of mathematically modeling gene regulation in a developing organism.  Students will learn how mathematicians work with biologist to design simple experiments and derive equations to model gene expression.  We will also explore some of the computational approaches currently being implemented in modern biology, including bioinformatics, data processing, and parameter estimation.  This one-year course will be an interactive experience for students interested in learning more about the interface of mathematics, computer science, and molecular biology.

Note: This yearlong course is 0.5 unit per ssemester.  Math 110 does not satisfy any requirement of the Math major.

May be repeated once for credit.

Course Designation/Attribute: FA

Anticipated Terms Offered: Offered every year
