In this course, you will apply principles learned in Systems Biology I to a particular biological system. You will be working in an interdisciplinary team to complete a semester-long project. This will involve reading journal articles, designing and running numerical experiments, and analyzing results. Throughout the semester, you will be presenting challenges and results. The course will culminate in both a poster presentation and a comprehensive journal-article styled report and oral presentation.
