Current Research in Mathematical Biology

MATH 790-77

This course will consist of three minicourses, each of which presents current research in an area of mathematical biology. Different topics will be covered in different years and students may re-take the course. Topics will be drawn from: probability theory and genomics, mathematical methods in biochemistry and cell biology, applications of topology and geometry to genomics and protein folding, heart physiology and mathematical issues in cardiac arrhythmias, biofluid mechanics, mathematical methods in kidney function, mathematical questions in image reconstruction, analysis of large data sets, and the evolution of viruses.
