LQB583 Molecular Systems Biology

Over the past decade, technological advances have transformed research capabilities to the point where multiple biomolecular targets, such as genes, proteins or metabolites, within a single system can be investigated simultaneously. Systems biology involves the study of a complex system through multiple biomolecular perspectives to determine molecular relationships and functions across a biological system of interest. Resulting data is often interrogated using advanced bioinformatics to determine how networks of molecules relate to specific phenotypes. Importantly, such approaches are becoming increasingly prevalent in the laboratories of most leading research institutions globally. Thus, the skills necessary to extract meaningful biological information using omics approaches are highly sought after. This unit will provide you with a strong overview of various omics approaches and expose you to advanced bioinformatics tools for solving complex biological problems.
