BMTRY 718 Stochastic Processes in Biology & Medicine


An overview of the role of stochastic processes is followed by review and extension of probability theory, including probability generating functions. The course will cover stochastic processes like random walk, branching processes, Markov processes, renewal theory, and hidden Markov process. Applications of these processes in genetics, clinical trial design and data analyses, and computer simulations are discussed throughout the course.
