Course description

The course will consist of two or three cases, i.e., scientific questions that we seek to answer. Scientific background material, in the form of links, summary texts, and lectures, will be provided to aid the analysis. Technical lectures (detailed or overviews) are available upon request. The class will be divided into groups, each of which do their own analysis. The intent is to have each group contain a broad spectrum of expertise.

Project reports will differ between cases, but could be a combination of oral presentations, posters, web pages, podcasts etc.
