About the course:
Have studied mathematics at 10+2 level. Have studied graduate level Biochemistry and molecular biology.
Industries that will recognize this course:
Bio-pharma industries use cellular level as well organism level mathematical models. This course would help to initiate biologists to such modeling.
About the course instructor:
Dr. Biplab Bose, is an Associate Professor, in the Department of Biosciences and Bioengineering at IIT Gwuahati. He has developed an elective course on Systems Biology and has taught this course, for last eight years, to B. Tech, M. Tech and Ph. D students at IIT Guwahati. He is interested in understating the design principles in molecular communication in cells. His research group at IIT Guwahati works on molecular network motifs, cellular information processing, and non-genetic heterogeneity.
