The physically motivated mathematical modelling of the dynamics of
biological systems provides a mean to turn the typically rather
qualitative field of biology quantitative and predictive.
While the well established area of
Mathematical Biology investigates simple systems, the young field
of Systems Biology considers the behavior of complex networks.
In this lecture, we will discuss the biological basics of selected
models and their mathematical and physical properties.

Cool paper and short version
 The second hour of the lecture on Wednesday, July 17, we will have
a question time ''What you ever wanted to ask about dynamical
systems in biology but never dared to ask''
 The written exam will take place Monday, July 22, 12:15 in SR I
 Prüfungsleistung: The mark of the written exam, Studienleistung: Pass the written exam
 The guided tour through our cathedral (in German, sorry, ... still thinking about, probably in English ...) will take place Wednesday,
July 24, 12:15. Meeting place: Historisches Kaufhaus
