Course content

Over the past 10-20 years, biology has become increasingly quantitative, and mathematical sciences have in turn been increasingly influenced by biology. In this unique course we teach quantitative methods and biological concepts together, through the application of the methods to cutting-edge biological research problems.

The course is suitable for:

  • Life scientists wishing to expand their quantitative skills in light of the increasingly quantitative nature of modern biology.
  • Physical scientists (mathematicians, physicists, statisticians, computer scientists) with a strong interest in biology.
  • The course serves as ideal preparation for either PhD studies or employment in fields of applied quantitative biology, such as resource management and conservation.
