This course introduces undergraduate students to the mathematical and computational analysis of biological systems. The systems analyzed include the genome, protein and gene networks, cell division cycles, and cellular level disease. Mathematical tools include matrix algebra, differential equations, cellular automata, cluster analysis, etc.
College/Department: School of Biomedical Engineering, Science Health Systems Repeat Status: Not repeatable for credit
Prerequisites: BIO 122 [Min Grade: D] and BMES 202 [Min Grade: D] and (MATH 210 [Min Grade: D] or ENGR 232 [Min Grade: D] or MATH 262 [Min Grade: D])
In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
