The seminar is focused on studying and presentation of selected scientific articles/book chapters in the field of computational systems biology. Students are assumed to understand elementary notions from biology and chemistry (grammar school level), to know basic principles of the systems biology paradigm, and to be interested in deeper understanding of the field. Previous successful studying of PB050 is welcome.
- Course Enrolment Limitations
