Prerequisites
The subject requires knowledge of elementary modeling and simulation methods for biological systems dynamics. Previous undertaking of the related subjects PB050 and PA054 is welcome, but not necessary. Students who finished laboratory exercises of PV225 can use the obtained data for development of a related in silico model.
Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
there are 69 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to:
search in public databases of biological knowledge;
create an in silico model of a biological system;
apply methods of computational systems biology to model analysis;
predict hypotheses regarding emergent properties of the modeled biological system.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course students should be able to:
use public databases of biological knowledge;
construct an in silico model of a biological system;
apply methods of computational systems biology to model analysis;
infer hypotheses regarding emergent properties of the modeled biological system.
