Course Description

This course will introduce students to the use of computer simulations in biology. In particular, students will use computer models to investigate biological problems and learn which different computer models might be applicable to different biological systems. Students will complete brief investigations which use simple computer models to investigate various biological processes. No prior programming experience is required, and we will learn the basics of the Visual Python language through these in-class investigations. Furthermore, students will learn how to present their results in a scientific manner. Students will then work on a project of their choosing and numerically investigate a chosen biological process. Students will finish the project by both submitting a project report and giving an in-class presentation.

Prerequisites: BIOL1310 and PHYS1210
