Description: This course is devoted to stochastic models of biological phenomena at cell and molecular lever, using tools of probability and statistics. The course starts with a refresher on conditional expectations and martingale convergence, Markov and point processes, and generating functions and functionals. It continues with branching process models of proliferations and then with Markov chain models of population genetics. Most examples concern growth and nutation of biological cells, with particular emphasis on cancer.
