FIU-MIT Quantitative Biology Workshop: Call to students in the Life Sciences and/or Computer Science

Are you a biology student but don’t know how research data is analyzed? Are you in computer science and interested in applying yourself to biological problems? Starting March 29th, you have the opportunity to complete an online workshop by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that teaches quantitative methods in programing and statistics, which can make you more competitive for graduate programs in the biological sciences and bioengineering. It’s not too late to sign up. Included are exercises in population biology, biochemical equilibrium and kinetics, molecular modeling of enzymes, visual neuroscience, genetics, gene expression and development, and genomics.

Join us every Saturday from 12:00pm - 2:00pm in GL266 for live tutorial and coding sessions that aim to help you complete the program.

Facilitators: Karla Montejo (kmont057@fiu.edu), MARC U*STAR, Honors College
