CELL 425 - Systems Biology


★ 3 (fi 6) (second term, 3-0-0) Systems biology is the molecular analysis of organisms and involves understanding the integrated and interacting network of genes, proteins and biochemical processes that give rise to what we define as life. Systems biology connects and integrates genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, engineering, cell biology and genetics with mathematics and computational analysis to enable the comprehensive discovery of principles underlying the functioning of living organisms. This course provides the student with the fundamentals of a systems biology approach to understanding organisms. Systems biology projects using database analysis software will be a large component of this course and therefore personal computers are required. Prerequisites: CELL 201, BIOL 201 or consent of Department. Note: Offered in odd-numbered years.
