Please reread Article III of the Academic Honor Code, which describes conducts that are considered unacceptable (cheating, violating the US Copyright law, etc).
This course provides an introduction to the use of mathematical techniques applied to solve problems in Biology. Models discussed fall into 3 categories: discrete, continuous, and spatially distributed. Biological topics discussed range from subcellular molecular systems and cellular behavior to physiological problems, population biology and developmental biology.
