Quantitative Analysis of Cells

HNRS 3035 Sec. 090 - Spring 2022

Associate Professor Naohiro Kato Department of Biological Sciences

Tu Th 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Cells function with large networks of interacting molecules. A quantitative approach to molecular cell biology allows traditional interaction diagrams to be extended to mechanistic mathematical models. These models are able to serve as working hypotheses to understand and predict the behavior of complex cellular functions. This course seeks to understand molecular cell biology quantitatively by translating molecular reactions in biochemistry and cell biology to ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and analyze them computationally.
