This lecture by Prof. Jeff Gore covers models and experiments of predator-prey interactions and oscillations. He begins with the Lokta-Volterra model, which has been called both "bad" (mathematically speaking) and "profoundly important."

This course presented by Prof. Jeff Gore provides an introduction to cellular and population-level systems biology with an emphasis on synthetic biology, modeling of genetic networks, cell-cell interactions, and evolutionary dynamics. Cellular systems include genetic switches and oscillators, network motifs, genetic network evolution, and cellular decision-making. Population-level systems include models of pattern formation, cell-cell communication, and evolutionary systems biology.
