60876-01 - Lecture: Mathematical and Computational Biology in Drug Discovery 2 CP

Semester spring semester 2022
Course frequency Every spring sem.
Lecturers Jitao David Zhang (jitao-david.zhang@unibas.ch, Assessor)
Content Mathematical and computational biology is essential to the interdisciplinary enterprise of disease understanding, target identification, and drug discovery. This introductory course will offer a practitioner's review of concepts and techniques in computational biology that are applied in drug discovery research. It is a follow-up course of the introductory course to Applied Mathematics and Informatics in Drug Discovery (iAMIDD) in fall semesters. This course aims at interested students who wish to learn more about computational biology, bioinformatics, and mathematical and statistical modelling in drug discovery.
Learning objectives 1. We discuss challenges and questions in modern drug discovery that are addressed by computational biology approaches.
2. We introduce basic concepts and tools, as well as recent topics and progress in computational biology research that are used in drug discovery.
3. We encourage interdisciplinary thinking, active learning, and teamwork.
Bibliography Papers and book chapters will be assigned as required, recommended, or optional reading. Lecture material is shared on the course's website, http://www.mcbdd.ch.

 

Admission requirements For students without background in bioinformatics and computational biology, it is recommended to finish the AMIDD course in the fall semester first before attending this course.
Language of instruction English
