636-0118-00LIntroduction to Dynamical Systems with Applications to Biology4 credits3GM. H. Khammash, A. Gupta
AbstractMany physical systems are dynamic and are characterized by internal variables that change with time. Describing the quantitative and qualitative features of this change is the topic of dynamical systems theory. Dynamical systems arise naturally in virtually all scientific disciplines including physics, biology, chemistry and engineering. This course is a broad introduction to the topic dynamical s
ObjectiveThe goal of this course is to introduce the student to dynamical systems and to develop a solid understanding of their fundamental properties. The theory will be developed systematically, focusing on analytical methods for low dimensional systems, geometric intuition, and application examples from biology. Computer simulations using matlab will be used to demonstrate various concepts
ContentA dynamical view of the world; the importance of nonlinearity; solutions of differential equations; solving equations on the computer; the phase plane; fixed points and stability; linear stability analysis; classifications of linear systems; Liapunov functions and nonlinear stability; cycles and oscillations; bifurcations and bifurcation diagrams. Many biological examples will be used through the course to demonstrate the concepts
Lecture notesWill be provided as needed.

636-0704-00LComputational Biology and Bioinformatics Seminar Restricted registration - show details
Number of participants limited to 30
The seminar is addressed primarily at students enrolled in the MSc CBB programme.
Students of other ETH study programmes interested in this course need to ask the lecturer for permission to enrol in the course.

The Seminar will be offered in autumn semester in Basel (involving professors and lecturers from the University of Basel) and in spring semester in Zurich (involving professors and lecturers from the University of Zurich). Professors and lecturers from ETH Zurich are involved in both semesters.

AbstractComputational biology and bioinformatics aim at an understanding of living systems through computation. The seminar combines student presentations and current research project presentations to review the rapidly developing field from a computer science perspective. Areas: DNA sequence analysis, proteomics, optimization and bio-inspired computing, and systems modeling, simulation and analysis.
ObjectiveStudying and presenting fundamental papers of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Learning how to make a scientific presentation and how classical methods are used or further developed in current research.
ContentComputational biology and bioinformatics aim at advancing the understanding of living systems through computation. The complexity of these systems, however, provides challenges for software and algorithms, and often requires entirely novel approaches in computer science. The aim of the seminar is to give an overview of this rapidly developing field from a computer science perspective. In particular, it will focus on the areas of (i) DNA sequence analysis, sequence comparison and reconstruction of phylogenetic trees, (ii) protein identification from experimental data, (iii) optimization and bio-inspired computing, and (iv) systems analysis of complex biological networks. The seminar combines the discussion of selected research papers with a major impact in their domain by the students with the presentation of current active research projects / open challenges in computational biology and bioinformatics by the lecturers. Each week, the seminar will focus on a different topic related to ongoing research projects at ETHZ, University of Basel and University of Zurich, thus giving the students the opportunity of obtaining knowledge about the basic research approaches and problems as well as of gaining insight into (and getting excited about) the latest developments in the field.
LiteratureOriginal papers to be presented by the students will be provided in the first week of the seminar.
