BIOL667
Mathematical Biology
Credits: 4
Grad Meth: Reg
Credit only granted for: BIOL667 or ZOOL625.
Formerly: ZOOL625.
Mathematical methods of analyzing deterministic and stochastic biological processes from a variety of areas (including population and evolutionary biology, neurobiology, physiology, and morphogenesis). Qualitative aspects of dynamical systems which are usually given as difference or differential equations. The computer program Mathematica will be used to obtain the numerical solutions of these equations.
BIOL671
Molecular Evolution
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg
Credit only granted for: BIOL671 or ZOOL645.
Formerly: ZOOL645.
Basic foundations through advanced concepts in molecular evolution, including patterns and processes of DNA sequence variation, transposable element dynamics, gene duplication and loss, and genome organization. Relevant concepts from genetics, biochemistry, and phylogenetics also will be covered.
BIOL704
Cell Biology from a Biophysical Perspective
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg
Recommended: BSCI330, PHYS121, and PHYS122.
Also offered as: BSCI404.
Credit only granted for: BSCI404, BIOL704, BIOL708O, or BIPH704.
Formerly: BIOL708O.
An approach to cell biology by focusing on mechanisms and unifying paradigms. It will not assume a great deal of factual biological knowledge, but will expect a background that prepares students to think quantitatively and mechanistically.
