CS 397V Topics: Informatics and Natural Computation (4 credits)
This course surveys the field of natural computation and its relation to informatics. Informatics studies the structure, algorithms, behavior, and interactions of natural and artificial systems that store, process, access and communicate information. Natural computing refers to a collection of disciplines that unite nature with computing where: nature serves as a source of inspiration for the development of computational tools or systems that are used for solving complex problems; computers are used as a means of synthesizing the structural patterns and behaviors of natural phenomena; and natural materials such as DNA are employed as the computers. Prerequisite: Junior standing. This course is open to computer science, chemistry, biochemistry, or biology majors only.
