MATH3565 and MATH5565     Course description

Aims: To introduce some areas of the biological sciences in which mathematics has a significant contribution to make, in order to model and understand a wide variety of biological phenomena. Objectives: By the end of this module, students should be able to: a) model, with understanding, a selected group of biological phenomena, b) study phenomena described by reaction-diffusion and phase plane techniques, c) study the mechanics of proteins and DNA, and the dynamics of cell membranes by means of statistical mechanics, d) study the modelling of T cell activation and T cell repertoire maintenance by means of random variables and continuous time Markov chains Methods of teaching.
