- Instructor: Elisa Franco
- Faculty sponsor: Richard M. Murray
- Lectures: Tuesday 11-12PM, Friday 1-2PM, 110 Steele.
NOTE: The Friday lectures will include discussing a paper related to the week topic. Papers will be announced about a week prior to the discussion.
## Course Schedule
## Course AdministrationThis course is a special topics course in which much of the lecture material has been prepared by a senior graduate student. The class is P/F only and there is no required homework and no midterm or final exam. Students will be required to work on an individual or team course project. ## Course ProjectProject proposals are due at 5pm on the last day of the Midterm examination period (May 4) and are due by 5pm on the last day of the final examination period (June 7). Project theme: select a cellular regulatory mechanism, define a list of important features of the system, come up with a modeling framework and carry out an analysis of its properties (e.g. stability, robustness, modularity...). |
