Weeks 2 and 3		Molecular networks in biology
			Group discussion of models and modelling
Weeks 4 and 5		Standards for Systems Biology
        			Data sources and standards for network biology
			Practical exploration of a molecular network
Weeks 6 and 7		Network properties
			Practical exercise on network statistics
Weeks 8 and 9		Mapping microarray data to a network	
Weeks 10 and 11		Independent work on network analysis
Weeks 12 and 13		Dynamic models
			Further work on modelling formalisms
			Practical exercise on a metabolic model
Weeks 14 to 16		Independent research for the second assessment


You can also book now for the courses running in March 2011.  The
March courses will include :

Introduction to software development in Java
Mathematics for metabolic modelling
Introduction to BioHealth Informatics
Introduction to microarray data analysis
Databases and data modelling
