To allow students to study a biological concept or system where mathematical modelling has made an important contribution.

Learning Outcomes:
Students will select a topic and, using supported self study materials they will
* Learn the key biological concepts underpinning the topic.
* Study some of the recent and/or seminal mathematical models which have been employed in the chosen biological system.
* Produce a summary review document to be used as a learning resource for peers.
* Engage in peer assessment of oral and written presentations.

Reading scientific research papers (F); writing reports (T,A); critical analysis of reports and presentations (T, A); seminar presentations (F, A).

This will vary but topics could be chosen from those studied in the Semester 1 unit Biology/Biochemistry for Mathematical Biologists or chosen independently by the student in agreement with the Director of Studies.
