The University of Manchester's distance learning course on molecular
interaction networks might be useful for members of this group who are
interested in toxicogenomics or systems toxicology.
The course, 'Bioinformatics for Systems Biology'
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'.
