This course covers the application of computers to solve problems in biology and medicine. Since computers are increasingly used in biological research, the course is valuable for all biological sciences majors and double majors in biomedical engineering. It is intended for students without computer programming experience. Students with a desire to apply programming methods to these problems should take the more advanced course 42-534 Computational Biology. Topics covered: computational molecular biology (analysis of protein and nucleic acid sequences), biological modeling and simulation (including computer models of neuron behavior, biochemical kinetics, and simulation of mutation), and biological imaging. Course work consists primarily of homework assignments making use of software packages for these applications. Also known as 03-310. Prerequisites: (21-118 or 21-121) AND 03-121 AND (99-101 or 99-102 or 99-103), or permission of instructor.
