7.09 Quantitative and Computational Biology


Class Info

Quantitative and computational analysis of biological systems at the molecular and cellular level. Includes models of biological processes across different time scales, from steady-state to kinetics of gene expression, circadian clock, cell growth, and evolutionary dynamics. Methods include physical, systems, and synthetic biology. Also covers second-generation sequencing technologies, and topics in computational analysis of genomes, including sequence alignment, motif finding, information theory and RNA secondary structure prediction.

This class has 7.03, and 7.05 as prerequisites.

7.09 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by C. Burge and G. W. Li.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 56-154.
