Title: Stochastic Processes in Gene Regulation

Instructor(s): John Reinitz

Class Schedule: Sec 01: MW 3:00 PM–4:20 PM in TBA

Office Hours: 

Textbook(s): Van Kampen, Stochastic Processes in Physics and Chemistry

Description: This didactic course covers the fundamentals of stochastic chemical processes as they arise in the study of gene regulation. The central object of study is the Chemical Master Equation and its coarse-grainings at the Langevin/Fokker-Planck, linear noise, and deterministic levels. We will consider both mathematical and computational approaches in contexts where there are both single and multiple deterministic limits.

Prerequisite(s): Consent of instructor.
