Objetivos:

This course will provide a multi-disciplinary forum to discuss the application of systems biology approaches in life sciences (e.g. molecular biology, immunology, oncology, microbiology). Students will learn about the latest technologies of the field and will be trained in performing his/her own computational data analyses.

Objectives:

Students will learn about the latest technologies of the field and will be trained in performing his/her own computational data analyses.

Justificativa:

Systems biology is an interdisciplinary field that combines high-throughput measurements and computational and mathematical modelling of the many thousand components of a biological system. Using a holistic approach, systems biology provides a comprehensive way of dissecting the complex interactions within biological processes. It has been successfully applied to several life science fields. In immunology, systems biology can lead to a better understanding of vaccine-induced immunity and disease pathogenesis. The challenge relies in dealing with the large amount of data generated from high-throughput techniques and the inherent complexity of the biological systems. This course highlights the recent technological and methodological advances in the field and shows how systems biology can be applied to unraveling novel insights into the molecular mechanisms of biological processes. Part of the course will be practical (hands-on training) and any student working in life sciences can enroll in the course. No computational or mathematical background is required. All activities, lectures and discussions involved in this course will be in English.
