BIO-612 / 3 credits

Teacher: Kanari Lida

Language: English


Only this year


This course teaches basic mathematical techniques that can be applied on biological and neuroscience challenges. During the course we will focus on solving similarity tasks with stochastic systems, random walks, algebraic topology and statistics.



Learning Outcomes:

* Understand mathematical concepts (statistics, random processes, algebraic topology) and their applications in a variety of biological problems
* Set up and solve similarity tasks based on experimental datasets
* Create computational models for the description, analysis and comparison of neuronal morphologies


Neuroscience, Statistics, Random walks, Stochastic processes, algebraic topology, neuronal morphologies
