    Instructor and Class Information:

    Course Objectives and Overview:
    This course provides an introduction to systems biology. It covers computational analysis of biological systems with a focus on computational tools and databases. Topics include: introduction to molecular genetics and molecular cell biology, genome structure, microRNA identification, Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) analysis, biomarker discovery, and drug development. These topics will be introduced with the related computational and biological environments. In this course we aim to achieve the following objectives:

    • Know different types of biological networks and their regularization mechanisms
    • Gain knowledge and hands-on experience of computational algorithms and databases in systems biology
    • Understand the interaction between computer science and modern biology within the context of data-driven knowledge discovery
    Prerequisites: EECS 730 Introduction to Bioinformatics, or consent of instructor
