COURSE DESCRIPTION:

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 Miquel Crusafont.
