The studies of biologically relevant systems are increasingly relying on computational methods. The lecture aims
at familiarizing students with different computational methods that can be used to tackle biological and biophysical
problems. We will provide a solid background for choosing appropriate computational techniques based on
scenarios of realistic biological problem. For this, we will provide a comprehensive overview of commonly used
computational tools and their underlying theoretical basis. The lecture will emphasize the strengths and drawbacks
of the presented approaches.
