Short Courses on the Mathematics of Biological Complexity
Supported by the National Institutes of Health GM59924-02

February 2003

A series of three Short Courses will be held at the University
of Tennessee oriented towards biologically-trained individuals, including
graduate students, biology faculty and those desiring to work in 
emerging fields in computational biology. The objective is to provide a 
rapid introduction to the mathematical and computational topics 
appropriate for understanding current research in biological complexity. 
The topics and dates are:

Course 1: Introduction to the Mathematics of Biological Complexity:
March 30 - April 2, 2003

Course 2: Optimal Control Theory in Application to Biology: 
July 9 - 12, 2003

Course 3: Modeling the evolutionary genetics of complex phenotypes: 
a hierarchical approach from sequences to populations:
August 24 - 27, 2003 (Tentative)
Complete details are available at
Significant financial support is available to cover lodging, travel
and registration expenses for attendees from non-profit institutions.
Potential attendees are urged to apply to attend any of these
courses as soon as possible.
