ENVR2900: Special Topics - Networks and Biology

Fall 2018 | MW 2:50 - 4:30 | CRN18519
ENVR2900 Topics: Networks and Biology

From social networks and cities to ecosystems and evolution, methods from network science provide powerful tools for understanding and investigating the natural and modern world. In this course, we will study the properties of diverse biological networks and learn foundational computational methods for analyzing, visualizing, and performing statistical investigations of networked data. We will also investigate how physicists have uncovered remarkable regularities in networked systems by applying approaches from scaling theory to biological networks. This is class is designed to teach you about the diversity of biological networks and provide the foundational tools needed to study networks derived from real-world data, these will include modern tools from machine learning, e.g., convolutional neural networks.
