BIOL 681 - Network Biology

3 Credit(s)

This graduate course introduces the students to an emerging field of Network Biology. The course covers general properties of biological networks, and continues with an in-depth treatment of the properties of the transcriptional, metabolic, protein-protein interaction, and signaling networks. Special emphasis is given to the technical advances in collection and analysis of high throughput data and to the associated information repositories. Reading assignments are largely based on the current literature in the field, through two texts will be recommended as additional resources. Exercises in a computer lab will give students hands-on experience with biological network analysis. The course is intended primarily for Ph.D. and master’s students but is open to advanced undergraduates by permission of instructor.

Enrollment Requirements:
