Mathematics in Biology

A graduate level course that I taught during two consecutive years 2017, 2018 as Harvard's MCB111. MCB111 is a requirement for graduate students in the Molecules, Cells and Organisms (MCO) program.

The course is relevant for people interests in biology, mathematics, and computer science. The course is designed more around the student's work than the lectures. Lectures are just a vehicle to introduce a particular problem describing the question at hand (usually taken from some recent publication), of which the student have to implement on their own most of what I would describe in the lectures. A hands-on section and the weekly homework implementing the lectures are the most important component of the learning experience.
