Networks as models of molecular interaction systems have a wide range of 
applications, from studies of the evolution of host-pathogen
interactions to the identification of potential drug targets.

The University of Manchester's distance learning course, 'Bioinformatics 
for Systems Biology' 
(http://octette.cs.man.ac.uk/bioinformatics/modules/systemsbiology.html) 
covers the use of networks for the integration and visualisation of 
biological data.  It could be taken as a single course, or with one or 
more of our other Masters level courses in Digital Biology.  Our other 
online courses include :

Mathematics for metabolic modelling
Bioinformatics for transcriptomics
Computational Systems Biology

Bioinformatics for Systems Biology covers:

* the use of models in biology
* structure and use of public pathway and interaction databases
* reconstruction of biological networks from experimental data
* network statistics
* integration of transcriptome data with a network
* advanced topics

The final section will prepare participants for our advanced course in
'Computational Systems Biology'.
