Previously known as 36040 and 27040: Introduction to Systems Biology (bachelor course)

Network example: Protein-Protein interaction network for biomarkers involved in depression - Larsen & Wernersson, 2012.

About the course

The "Introduction to Systems Biology" course is a Bachelor level course aiming at:

  • Teaching a conceptual introduction to the core of Systems Biology.
  • Having a very large focus on Network Biology, including hands-on experience on how to work with, and critically interpret biological networks.
  • All teaching will be very closely related to actual biology.
  • We will work with examples of how the Systems Biology approach can be applied to biomedical research, and help find new biomarkers and potential drug targets.
  • The students will learn how to use the biological networks as a scaffold for more refined analyses using data integration (e.g. filtering the network using tissue-specific expression, or mapping in protein meta data).

Course organizers: Rasmus Wernersson (raz@bioinformatics.dtu.dk) ; Lars Rønn Olsen (lro@bioinformatics.dtu.dk)

Two versions - same curriculum

Starting spring 2020, the Introduction to System Biology course exists in two versions:

  • 22140 - runs in the autumn on Thursday afternoons (13-17)
  • 22141 - runs in the spring on Tuesday EVENINGS (18-22)

Curriculum, computer exercises and exam is the same for both courses.
