2002 Short Course
Introduction to the Mathematics of Biological Complexity:
July 12, 2002
-- In conjunction with Conference on Mathematics and Biology - SMB Annual Meeting 2002
The short course leaders were : Dr. Holly Gaff, Dr. Louis Gross, Dr. Suzanne Lenhart, and Dr. Jason Wolf
The objective of this short course is to attract biologists who would benefit from a broad overview of modern quantitative techniques that appear again and again in many biological contexts. This Short Course is designed as a very quick introduction to the material previously presented in a longer course. For an overview of the types of material we will summarize, see Previous Short Courses (described below) with emphasis on the information on Course 1. The course should be particularly beneficial to biologists, MDs, and other life science researchers and students who would like to establish collaborations with more quantitatively-trained colleagues, or are pursuing these collaborations now. Detailed contents of the Course will be set up based in part upon the research interests of attendees. All Short Course attendees are expected to stay for the Conference, as it will provide an excellent opportunity for attendees to confer with many leading mathematical biologists and possibly foster new collaborations.
