Mode of workshop: Online
About the workshop:
Mathematical and computational models in biological science enable the simulation of simple to complex biological processes, disease progression , mechanisms and dynamics, and distribution of drugs in tissues and organs while in biological engineering to model bioreactors/fermenters, growth kinetics and diffusion and separation processes. The models could be a set of ordinary or partial differential equations, derived from first principles with several assumptions. In this workshop modelling and simulation of various biological science and engineering problems will be discussed which will include reaction/cell growth kinetics, diffusion process in biofilm, predator – prey models, pharmacokinetics , bioreactor and chromatography.
A free downloadable ODE solver will be demonstrated to solve the various problems.
