A Short Tour
About the Book
Have you ever wondered why zebras have stripes? Have you ever wondered how your cells can quickly react to their environment and perform complex tasks without intelligence? Have you ever wondered why the original SARS coronavirus fizzled out but SARS-CoV-2 has spread like wildfire around the planet? Have you ever wondered how algorithms can be trained to “see” cells as well as a human?
What these questions share is that they can start to be answered by modeling biological systems at multiple scales of resolution, from the microscopic to the molecular.
This project serves as a preorder for a print companion to Biological Modeling (http://biologicalmodeling.org), a new open course in biological modeling. This textbook, called Biological Modeling: A Short Tour, will follow the main narrative of this course.
A print copy of the book is currently being printed and can be preordered from
Indiegogo, which will include the ebook. Please use this site if you are interested in a standalone copy of the ebook.
