Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to describe complex biological processes or specific aspects thereof by means of simple mathematical models. Furthermore, students are capable of applying analytical and/or numerical methods in order to solve the arsing (systems of) equations, and of interpreting the results in the overall context.

Subject of course

  • Definition of the term "systems biology"
  • Mathematical methods for treatment of complex biological systems (theory and examples)
  • Influence of the mechanical loading on biological systems (theory and examples)
  • Introduction of approaches for utilization of experimental evidence for development of models by means of case studies

Teaching methods

Lecture supported by digital presentations; discussion of case studies.
