BIOL 4755/BIOL 8803: Mathematical Biology aka "Introduction to Systems Biology: Design Principles of Biological Circuits"
Quantitative systems biology, with an emphasis on building models of how cells produce and regulate proteins: from gene regulation to complex networks to examples of chemotaxis, kinetic proofreading, and collective behaviors. The textbook, An Introduction to Systems Biology, is accessible to math, science, and engineering, majors. The aim will be to develop quantitative toolkits to analyze the complex mechanisms behind the regulation, design, and operation of biological circuits. Computer programming will be done in Matlab, though no prior experience with Matlab is necessary for the course.
