BIOE 5750: Modeling and Inference in Bioengineering
Lecture - 4 credits
- Develops a set of statistical tools to address poorly posed inverse problems.
- Interpreting complex and partial information is a routine task in research as well as in our daily lives.
- Such tasks include estimating quantitative properties of a biological system from indirect noisy measurements, responding to fluctuating environmental signals, or breaking encrypted messages.
- Common to these diverse questions is a need to construct a predictive model from partial data.
- Draws on examples from primary literature in biology to study text recognition, trait mapping, sequence alignment, decoding cryptographs, processing of chemoattractive signals to find food, and survival strategies of bacteria in unpredictable environments.
