Course at EMBL-EBI
Systems biology: from large datasets to biological insight
This course covers the use of computational tools to extract biological insight from omics datasets. The content will explore a range of approaches - ranging from network inference and data integration to machine learning and logic modelling - that can be used to extract biological insights from varied data types. Together these techniques will provide participants with a useful toolkit for designing new strategies to extract relevant information and understanding from large-scale biological data.
The motivation for running this course is a result of advances in computer science and high-performance computing that have led to groundbreaking developments in systems biology model inference. With the comparable increase of publicly-available, large-scale biological data, the challenge now lies in interpreting them in a biologically valuable manner. Likewise, machine learning approaches are making a significant impact in our analysis of large omics datasets and the extraction of useful biological knowledge.
