BME 421 - Kinetics of Receptor-Mediated Processes
Total Credits: 3
Receptor-mediated processes impact many aspects of cell behavior, including cell proliferation, survival, migration and death. This course will focus on the development of mathematical descriptions of cell signaling processes. In particular, we will highlight models that allow the formulation of testable, mechanistic hypotheses related to cell behavior. Additionally, we will examine methods to analyze the flux of information and metabolites through enzymatic cascades. Applications of these methods in cellular engineering, metabolic engineering and systems biology will be described. Prerequisites: senior or graduate standing.
