About the course

Open only to KU students from BSc in Health and Informatics. Interested DTU students are advised to follow the autumn course 36040 (previously 27040).

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 theory will be related to biological concepts that it can be applied to.
  • 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) and Lasse Folkersen (lassefolkersen@bioinformatics.dtu.dk).
