Description

This course introduces the world of modeling and simulation. It explains the underlying mathematics and introduces relevant products. The student will learn in which medical fields the techniques can be applied as in drug design, genome projects or research of physiology. A special track will cover the principles of grid computing.

Further topics:

  • bioinformatics
  • DNA analysis
  • drug design
  • metabolic engineering
  • virtual cell

Target

Upon completion of this course the student will be able to

  • Model or simulate simple tasks
  • Select for a given task the appropriate technology and understand the limitation of a given technology
  • Mention existing commercial products and solutions as well as open-source projects
  • Understand the means of scaling for huge simulation/modeling tasks
