Evolutionary Systems Biology

Evolutionary Systems Biology is an emerging field that builds bridges between evolutionary biology and current systems biology with the help of computational modeling fueled by experimental observations. It necessarily touches many disciplines and so does this course.

This new course is designed to help you get started with research on questions in evolutionary systems biology that interest you. You will maintain a research-log of your discoveries and write a collaborative research proposal with students from other disciplines. If you are studying towards an evolution degree, your research proposal should address some evolutionary question using a rigorous methodology.

To participate you need to be an advanced undergraduate or graduate student and have found your field. Your field could be any biology or engineering discipline, math, computer science, physics, chemistry or any other field that might help understand evolution. As this course is new and under development, it does not have a permanent course number yet. However, you can ask your advisor to count this course as an elective.

The course has its dedicated website.
