Summary

Mathematical modelling of DNA

Content

This course is designed to be an introduction, within the particular context of DNA, to the interplay between analysis, computation and experiment that makes up the process called mathematical modelling. In addition to students mainly interested in DNA modelling, the course is intended for students wishing an introduction to the modelling process in general, and will describe a number of widely encountered mathematical and computational techniques, all within the context of the software package cgDNA http://lcvmwww.epfl.ch/cgDNA/

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

1st & 2nd year courses in math or physics, (or with teacher's permission)

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Teaching methods

Ex cathedra lecture and exercises in the classroom

Assessment methods

Oral exam. Dans le cas de l¿art. 3 al. 5 du Règlement de section, l¿enseignant décide de la forme de l¿examen qu¿il communique aux étudiants concernés.
