Life science and computer science students will form small groups that solve practical problems in the field of computational life science.
Biology students learn computer literacy for group works with computer science students. Computer science students learn basic mathematics for modeling and simulation in Computational life science field.
Computational Life Science, Creative Collaborative Works
|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||✔ Communication skills||✔ Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
In the first 8 classes, students are separated into biology students and computer science students, receiving instruction in separate classrooms. In each class the instructor lectures using original materials. In each class, through simple individual and group exercises, students' achievements are evaluated while also aiding their acquisition of knowledge. In the final 7 classes, students solve group problems in contest format in small groups of students with different majors.
|Course schedule||Required learning|

|Class 6||Bio-5 : Programming in Ruby 4 CS-4 : Non-linear systems 2||class and objects, phase diagram|
|Class 7||Bio-6 : Programming in Ruby 5 CS-6 : Non-linear systems 3||class definition, bifurcation|
|Class 8||Bio-7 : Presentation CS-7 : Topics||Ruby program, systems modeling|
|Class 9||Introduction for creative collaborative works||brain storming, KJ method|
|Class 10||group work 1||group work|
|Class 11||group work 2||group work|
|Class 12||group work 3||group work|
|Class 13||group work 4||group work|
|Class 14||group work 5||group work|
For every class, instructors lecture independent topics with original handouts.
Every class also includes simple exercises by individual students or by groups. These exercises help understanding the principle and also become materials for final evaluation. Ranking in the final competition will be added.
Students must belong to the Education Academy of Computational Life Sciences Doctors Education Program (ACLS)
