Course Overview

This module provides an introduction to the theory and concepts of network analysis. Attendees will learn how to construct protein-protein interaction networks and subsequently use these to analyse large-scale datasets generated these to by techniques such as RNA-Seq or mass-spec proteomics. The course will focus on giving attendees hands-on experience in the use of Cytoscape and selected network analysis apps.

Audience

This is aimed at researchers interested in proteins, network analysis, protein-protein interactions and related areas. No prior experience of bioinformatics is required, but an undergraduate level knowledge of molecular biology would be of benefit to those attending.

Modules and resources

Cytoscape

Learning outcomes

Participants should be able to:

  • Access interaction data from Cytoscape and build a network
  • Use a variety of analysis apps within Cytoscape: BINGO, MCODE, ClueGO...)
  • Analyse a large dataset

Programme

This course runs from 09:30-17:30 including breaks and lunch.
