Introduction into Quantitative Biology

when 14 July 2014 - 18 July 2014
duration 1 week
credits 1.5 ECTS
fee EUR 350

Discoveries in the biological sciences increasingly require combining sophisticated technologies, quantitative measurements, and theoretical approaches such as bioinformatics, mathematical modelling and computer simulations. Hence, modern Life Sciences research faces the challenge to integrate different scientific disciplines and foster collaborative projects between biologists, chemists, physicists, computer scientists and mathematicians to make biology a quantitative natural science discipline. This course gives you a one week introduction into the approaches and research questions in this modern field of “quantitative biology”. We aim at students having completed a bachelor program in any of the sciences with a genuine interest in interdisciplinary work.

Course leader

Prof.dr. Rob J. de Boer (Theoretical Biology UU)

Target group

Students having completed their bachelor in the Science with a keen interest in interdisciplinary modern biology.

Course aim

Introduce students from the sciences into interdisciplinary work in modern biology.
