Networks as models of molecular interaction systems have a wide range of
applications, from studies of the evolution of host-pathogen
interactions to the identification of potential drug targets. Cytoscape
is a popular tool for the visualisation and analysis of these networks.
The University of Manchester's distance learning course, 'Bioinformatics
for Systems Biology'
covers the use of networks for the integration and visualisation of
biological data. It could be taken as a single course, or with one or
more of our other Masters level courses in Digital Biology. Our other
online courses include :
Mathematics for metabolic modelling
Bioinformatics for transcriptomics
Computational Systems Biology
Bioinformatics for Systems Biology covers:
* The use of models in biology
* Structure and use of public pathway and interaction databases
* Reconstruction of biological networks from experimental data
* Network statistics
* Integration of transcriptome data with a network
* Advanced topics
The final section will prepare participants for our advanced course in
'Computational Systems Biology'.
