Math 563: Mathematical Genetics
This course requires a knowledge of calculus and basic probability and statistics. Students should be familiar with the concepts of probability, expected value, variance, covariance, and some of the basic probability distributions (binomial, normal, exponential, Poisson). Some experience with a programming language is also helpful, but some sample programs will be provided to ease the way for those with no programming background or those wishing to try a new coding language. No prior knowledge of biology is presumed. This course is populated by students with very different backgrounds. The key is a willingness to dive in and get your hands dirty (or your feet wet) trying out different ideas.
