必修課程

生物學、計算科學及統計學方面的概論課程。假如你懷疑自身(在這些簡介課程上)是否具有同等經驗能力,你應該參加適當的基礎課程,將有助於趕上進度。

課程架構

除了課程之外,會議在上述的日期與時間將舉行課程討論。學生應至少參與一種課程討論,並組成由一個以上生物學方面專家及一個以上數學/電腦/工程專家的問題解決及計畫小組(或二到四個對雙邊領域都有見識的人)。基礎程式設計及分子生物學的獨立課程將會在一開始的數週內開課給那些超出預期廣泛不同背景的學生。分數將會根據六個問題集、一次期末計畫以及每週參與課程討論(包含問題和一篇科學論文在內)的情形給分。每週課程將會花費約四個小時的時間,另外根據不同背景每週還額外需要六到十二個小時。


Prerequisites

Introductory courses in biology, computer science, and statistics. If you have any doubt about whether you have the equivalent experience, you should attend the appropriate sections which will focus on catching up with extra sections supplementing catch-up topics in greatest demand.

Course Organization

In addition to the lectures there will be section discussion meetings at the days and times above. Students will participate in at least one of those sections and form problem-solving and project teams consisting of at least one biology expert and one math/computer/engineering expert (or two to four people knowledgeable in both disciplines). Separate section on the basics of programming and molecular biology will be available in the first few weeks to even out the expected wide variation in backgrounds. Grades will be based on six problem sets, one final project, and participation in discussion sections covering the problems and about one scientific article per week. Your time commitment will be about 4 hours for classes and 6 to 12 additional hours per week, depending on background.
