HI 5321 Biomedical Signal Processing

Course Type: basic
Credit Hours: 3

This course provides a broad and practical introduction to the major techniques employed in the computational modeling of biological structures: computational chemistry, molecular dynamics, normal mode analysis, Monte Carlo simulations, electrostatics, and conformational analysis. The course will be useful for graduate students in the pharmaceutical and medical disciplines that wish to model the physical and chemical properties of biological structures.


Background in at least one quantitative discipline (physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science) at college level. Knowledge of at least one programming language. Scientific curiosity and imagination. Good writing skills. Interest in the crossing of boundaries between traditional scientific disciplines.
