Official Description

This course focuses on the collective behavior of cellular populations coordinated and regulated by  intra  and inter-cellular genetic and signaling pathways. We will introduce the mathematical tools to model such non-linear processes, both in a deterministic as well as in a stochastic framework and discuss connection between traditional tools with the current machine learning approaches to various problems. We will cover biological case studies such as microbial population dynamics, the mammalian immune response, disease epidemics, cell differentiation, development and morphogenesis and behavior of neuronal assemblies. Special topics might include biophysics of specific organs, such heart, liver and the brain.
