AbstractThis course provides an overview of modern concepts of bioengineering across different levels of complexity, from single molecules to systems, microscaled reactors to production environments, and across different fields of applications
ObjectiveStudents will be able to recognize major developments in bioengineering across different organisms and levels of complexity and be able to relate it to major technological and conceptual advances in the underlying sciences.
ContentMolecular and cellular engineering; Synthetic biology: Engineering strategies in biology; from single molecules to systems; downscaling bioengineering; Bioengineering in chemistry, pharmaceutical sciences, and diagnostics, personalized medicine.

636-0118-00LIntroduction to Dynamical Systems with Applications to Biology4 credits3GM. H. Khammash, A. Gupta
AbstractMany physical systems are dynamic and are characterized by internal variables that change with time. Describing the quantitative and qualitative features of this change is the topic of dynamical systems theory. Dynamical systems arise naturally in virtually all scientific disciplines including physics, biology, chemistry and engineering. This course is a broad introduction to the topic dynamical s
ObjectiveThe goal of this course is to introduce the student to dynamical systems and to develop a solid understanding of their fundamental properties. The theory will be developed systematically, focusing on analytical methods for low dimensional systems, geometric intuition, and application examples from biology. Computer simulations using matlab will be used to demonstrate various concepts
ContentA dynamical view of the world; the importance of nonlinearity; solutions of differential equations; solving equations on the computer; the phase plane; fixed points and stability; linear stability analysis; classifications of linear systems; Liapunov functions and nonlinear stability; cycles and oscillations; bifurcations and bifurcation diagrams. Many biological examples will be used through the course to demonstrate the concepts
Lecture notesWill be provided as needed.
