MATH 111 - Diving into Mathematics 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 biologists 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 semester. Math 111 does not satisfy any requirement of the Math major.
