Applications of Computational Biology
This workshop will review a range of applications in computational biology, a rapidly evolving field that utilizes novel data analysis techniques and mathematical modeling to analyze biological systems.
Organizer: Anirudh Bansal
Introduction to Computational Neuroscience
Computational neuroscience involves the usage of mathematical models to understand the brain. We will specifically focus at the level of ions and synapses and use modeling software NEURON. Students will learn how to construct models of neurons using NEURON, write hoc source code, and graph an action potential. Past experience in python is recommended.
