3. Course contents *

This course covers the description of biosystems in mathematical models. The student learns to validate and analyse the models. More specifically, the cours deals with the construction of a model based on experimental data (structure model), parameter estimation, optimization criteria and algorithms, model validation, discrimination between rival models, Monte Carlo simulation and analysis. The student learns to write Matlab programs to model and simulate. This will also deepen their knowledge and understanding of the matter.
