This course might be of interest for some people in this list: ANATOMICAL NETWORK ANALYSIS (ANNA), October 22nd-26th, 2018.
Place: Capellades, Barcelona (Spain).
Instructors: Diego Rasskin-Gutman (Cavanilles Institute of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology, Spain) and Borja Esteve-Altava (The Royal Veterinary College, UK).
Anatomical Network Analysis (AnNA) is a framework for quantitatively characterizing the topological organization of anatomical systems using tools from Network Theory. AnNA is emerging as a new tool to identify developmental constraints, measuring morphological complexity and modularity, building morphospaces, and modelling the growth of anatomical structures.
This course is entitled to teach the main concepts of AnNA. Students will learn the basics of network analysis applied to morphological and anatomical systems: gathering information, building network models, analysing them, and interpret the outcomes of their analysis. This course combines theoretical introductions and practical exercises using the free and open-source software R and RStudio.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own data for practising and for the supervised project session; anatomical networks will be provided by the instructors if needed.
This course is addressed to PhD students, postdocs and senior researchers.
