Description: 

Although mathematics and biology have traditionally not gotten along, recent advances in molecular biology and medicine have made biological experiments essentially quantitative. This course introduces mathematical ideas that are useful for understanding and analyzing biological data, including data description and fitting, basic Bayesian analysis, Markov models, and differential equations. Students acquire hands-on experience working with data and implementing mathematical models computationally using the R programming language. The two main goals are to acquire computational skills and conceptual familiarity with mathematical models used in biological research.

*PQ: one calculus course. Enrollment limit 20.  Enrollment in this course fulfills one of the general requirement for biological sciences majors.
