Section: 001
Term: FA 2018
Subject: Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BIOINF)
Department: MED Bioinformatics
Requirements & Distribution:
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

This course addresses methods and principles involved in constructing and studying the structure and function of biological networks using examples from real datasets (emphasis on genome-wide chromosome conformation capture (Hi-C), RNA-sew, and imaging). Basic mathematical principles required for understanding biological networks included. Topics include: review of basic probability theory, spectral graph theory, higher-order singular value decomposition, graphs and their Laplacians. Fiedler number and Fiedler vector, clustering network controllability.
