The student is able to read most articles from biomathematical journals, to perform a basic literature research and knows the most important data bases to search for biomathematical papers. He/she is able to approach a given problem, know the standard models and adapt them to the problem under consideration.


Basics in mathematical methods: nonlinear dynamics and bifurcation theory, singular perturbation theory, basic elements of stochastic processes. Most important/common mathematical models in: ecology, biochemistry, regulatory pathways, neuronal sciences and population genetics.
