F11MS Modelling and Simulation in Life Sciences

Prof Jonathan Sherratt

Course co-ordinator(s): Prof Jonathan Sherratt (Edinburgh).


This course will teach methods for developing mathematical models of problems in biology, ecology and medicine. A wide range of modelling approaches will be described, and will be illustrated using case studies. An important part of the course is reading and discussion of recent research papers, and reviews of these papers will form part of the coursework mark. The remainder of the coursework will involve a group project in which one or more models will be developed for a particular problem in the life sciences.
