Mathematical methods in biology, Part 2 | 3 Cr | Lecture Course | 2.11.2017 - 15.12.2017 |

### Prerequisites

none

### Learning outcomes

Basic probability theory; modelling probabilistic phenomena; the concept of hypothesis testing and the Bayesian approach |

### Timing

Period II of the academic year 2017-2018. If attendance is satisfactory, offered in period II every other year (2019 etc)

### Contents

A highly practical introduction to mathematical concepts and methods applied in the life sciences. We learn mathematics through solving problems of biological interest, with emphasis on applicable skills and hands-on experience. The course is specifically tailored for biology students and assumes no background in mathematics. Part 2 contains the fundamentals of probability theory, providing tools for probabilistic models and future studies in statistics (hypothesis testing and Bayesian statistics).
