Biological and Life Informatics University of Tsukuba
A course designed to teach informatic aspects of life. Measurement and modelling, data storage, analysis and representation of biological phenomena are discussed, focusing on genetic information, information processing in living organisms, brain activity and physiological signals. Specifically, bioinformatics methods to treat biological information, systems biology approach to model living organisms, physiological signal processing, auditory system and its modeling, and media art with physiological information are explained. Informatic principles and approaches in modern biology will also be discussed with related biological processes.
Those completing the course will be able to understand and explain measurement and modelling, data storage, analysis and representation of genetic information, information processing in living organisms, brain activity and physiological signals.
Quantitative research competence, Media expertise
Grading Method Grading considers the assignment woks given based on the course objectives. Percentage - Assignment work : 100% Grading Criteria Students will pass the course based on the following criteria. - All assignments are submitted before the deadlines - All assignments are above the minimum criteria The grade of A+ to C will be based on the average score of the assignments.
