The goal of this course is to introduce biology students to the mathematical modeling of living processes from a systems perspective. According to this perspective, biological processes emerge from the interaction between different elements, be them genes and proteins in the case of cellular processes; cells in the case of tissues; organs in the case of organisms and organisms in the case of ecosystems. We will learn how to represent these interactions mathematically, how to simulate them in a computer, and how to generate predictions that can be compared with reality.
