Learning outcomes

The students understand the basics of probability theory, matrix theory, and differential equations as well as their importance in bioinformatics. The students can 1) explain the essential properties of probability and random variables, 2) characterise matrices and perform basic matrix operations, 3) solve systems of linear equations using matrices, and 4) characterise and graphically analyse ordinary differential equations. The students are able to apply their knowledge to solve simple problems. As an introductory course, the students are not expected to obtain deep theoretical understanding or advanced practical skills.

Contents

The lectures focus on the bio-health domain and cover the topics needed to reach the learning outcomes. The students practise their hands-on skills by solving exercises.
