Assignment to Modules
MA5607: Topics in Computational Biology (Selected Topics in Machine Learning and Modelling in Biology) / Topics in Computational Biology (Selected Topics in Machine Learning and Modelling in Biology)
This module is included in the following catalogs:
- Elective Modules Natural Sciences in the Master Program Matter to Life
Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.
|additional remarks||In all fields of life sciences, ranging from yeast strain optimization for brewing (→ bioprocess engineering) over stem cell research (→ basic biology) to the treatment of disease (→ medicine), computational methods are employed to deepen our understanding of the respective biological processes/system. As the range of biological questions approached using computational biology is rather broad, the number of different methods applied in this field is tremendous. Commonly used tools include gene sequence analysis, image analysis, statistical network modeling and dynamic pathway modeling. All of these tools span one or more fields of mathematics, e.g., statistics, differential equations and optimization. This lecture series aims at providing the participants with an overview about different fields of computational biology and the methods used in this field. To complement the theoretical part, concrete application and ongoing research projects will be presented. The individual lectures of the lecture series will be taught by persons from the: - M12 Biomathematics, Center of Mathematical Sciences, TUM - Institute of Computational Biology, Helmholtz Center Munich|
