EECE 5115: Dynamical Systems in Biological Engineering
Lecture - 4 credits
- Provides an introduction to the theoretical analysis and modeling of dynamical systems in biology, ranging from molecular to population applications.
- Topics include difference and differential equation models, with basic theory including nondimensionalization, steady states, linearization, stability, eigenvalues, global behavior, singular perturbations, multistability, hysteresis, cooperativity, periodic solutions, excitable systems, bifurcations, and an introduction to spatial (PDE) models.
- Develops all concepts in the context of concrete biological applications, such as gene regulation, chemical reaction networks and stoichiometry, drug models and PK/PD, receptor/ligand interactions, synthetic constructs, action potential generation, enzymatic reactions, population interactions, epidemiology, epigenetic phenomena including differentiation, and transport, chemotaxis, and diffusion.
- BIOE 5115 and EECE 5115 are cross-listed.
