Course: Algorithms for Biological Networks (3rd edition) | BioSB research school | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it
Pedro Fernandes's insight:
Course description

In the third edition of this course, we will first give a brief overview of molecular biology, the advent of high-throughput measurement techniques and large databases containing biological knowledge, and the importance of networks to model all this. We will highlight a number of peculiar features of biological networks. Next, a number of basic network models (linear, Boolean, Bayesian) will be discussed, as well as methods of inferring networks from observed measurement data and of integrating various data sources and databases to refine networks. Once networks are derived they often serve as the cornerstone in the visualization, analysis and interpretation of high-throughput data; we will discuss a number of methods in this area.

As an alternative to static networks, a number of alternative dynamic network models more suited for high-level simulation of cellular behaviour for will be introduced. Finally, we will give some examples of algorithms exploiting the networks found to learn about biology, specifically for inspecting protein interaction networks and for finding active sub networks.

from the paper:

"In summary, the characterization of the Hadza GM presents a suite of unique features that suggest specific adaptation to a foraging lifestyle, which includes a large proportion of highly refractory plant foods."

Costas Bouyioukos's curator insight, March 26, 4:31 AM

Our tutorial on tools for the systematic analysis of periodicities on genomic sequences run (almost) smoothly yesterday at the 2014 aSSB Evry Thematic School.

 

Find the tools of MEGA team on iSSB webtools server https://absynth.issb.genopole.fr/Bioinformatics/

under the systems biology section.
(registration, simple and free, is required)

E.O. Wilson shares a secret: Discoveries emerge from ideas, not number-crunching.
Pedro Fernandes's insight:

Got this link from Xose Fenandez. Xose is right, information-based biology  does require far more than average math skills.

The Gulbenkian Training Programme in Bioinformatics runs regularly at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, in Oeiras, Portugal, since 1999. So far, more than 2400 course attendees have acquired practical skills that they can use with independence. Short, intensive hands on courses available on application.
The Programme is described in Brief Bioinform (2010) 11(6): 626-634, first published online October 21, 2010 doi:10.1093/bib/bbq063.
