This is the study programme for 2020/2021. It is subject to change.
Reaction mechanisms and chemical rate equations, FORTRAN programming skills, stiffly stable algorithms for solving coupled firstorder differential equations, Open Source program packages for solving reaction kinetic systems, graphical output programming, modelling enzyme kinetic systems, chemical oscillations, circadian rhythms, control coefficients and sensitivity analysis, modelling temperaturecompensated systems.
Learning outcome
After having successfully completed the course the student should be able to: understand how a FORTRAN program is build up and compiled
 make programs which describe the rate equations for enzyme catalyzed reactions, chemical or biochemical oscillators as well as circadian rhythms
 modelling of temperature compensated systems
 do a sensitivity analysis of a reaction kinetic network
After having completed the course successfully, the student will have knowledge that can be applied in further studies and research projects, such as Master and PhD projects.
