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).
