About the Course

This course provides an introduction to the theoretical foundations of systems biology and knowledge of relevant advanced experimental methods. In this course you will learn to create mathematical models of cellular modules such as signaling pathways and metabolic systems. Simulations are an integral part of the course to test and verify the models' predictions. The course also provides a thorough knowledge of how to experimentally perform genome-wide studies on transcripts (transcriptomics), protein (proteomics) and metabolites (metabolomics). The course also describes how one introduces genetic changes in various model systems, which is central to be able to test given hypotheses experimentally. The course includes elements that increase understanding and reflection on ethical issues. In addition seminars / field trips are included to provide a greater insight into existing and future labor market. Emphasis is placed on individual seminars, tasks and literature studies. The course is taught in English.
