MATLAB is a powerful, high-level programming language for numerical computation, visualization, and application development. This workshop will start by introducing the MATLAB environment and then cover working with arrays and matrices, loops and conditional statements, writing your own functions, working with files and visualizing your data. The final day will briefly introduce utilizing MATLAB to solve differential equations and the basics of computational systems biology modeling using MATLAB. The course is supplemented with many hands-on exercises. The workshop is suitable for those with or without coding experience in other languages. No computational knowledge is assumed and no prerequisite workshops are required, however the Unix workshop (workshop 1) may be a useful foundation.
The slides for day 1 can be found here.

Dr. Ying Tang is a postdoc in signaling systems laboratory working with Professor Alexander Hoffmann. His research interest is to develop quantitative understanding on immune systems through mathematical modeling, from the level of intracellular information transmission to cell population dynamics. Prior to joining UCLA, he did Ph.D. study in Shanghai Jiao Tong University and University of California, San Diego. During Ph.D., he worked on stochastic process, nonequilibrium statistical physics, and mathematical modeling of E. coli chemotaxis. Email: email@example.com
