Sabadell, Barcelona (España).
In the last decades, network analysis has provided new insights into the
organization and functioning of complex biological systems such as brain wiring,
genetic regulation, or ecological dynamics.
A basic knowledge on network modeling and network analysis will provide
biologists a better understanding of cutting-edge research in their fields.
This course will introduce participants into the analysis of complex biological
systems using network models. Students will learn the basics of network
analysis: gathering information, building network models, and interpret the
outcomes of their analysis.
This course combines theoretical introduction and computing practices using the
free software environment R (previous knowledge in R is not required)
Participants are encouraged to bring their own data for practicing. Emphasis is
placed on offering participants a wide overview of network modeling in biology
and the many available software tools to do it.
Organized by: Transmitting Science and the Institut Catalá de Paleontologia
