Practical Course on Gene/Protein Functional Networks and Interactomes

Training

This will be a short practical course on Bioinformatics for biologists, molecular biologists or young researchers working in the field of biomedical or biological sciences who are interested in learning, in a practical way, how to build and explore gene and protein networks and how to place in a relational context (i.e. in a network-based context) the lists of genes or proteins, often derived from genomic or proteomic analyses. The course will be held for two days in Cape Town (South Africa) at the University of Cape Town Medical School, hosted by the Computational Biology Group (CBIO). It will be given by Professor Dr. Javier De Las Rivas, from the University of Salamanca and the Spanish National Research Council (USAL/CSIC, Spain).

The course will be divided in four sessions with the following topics: 
(1) Bioinformatics tools for functional enrichment analysis; 
(2) Construction of gene functional networks; 
(3) Protein interaction networks; 
(4) Construction and analysis of gene/protein networks.

The students attending do not need to know programming, but should be familiar with working on computers and keen to learn how to use Bioinformatics tools and concepts.
