Systems biology is a still expanding field of research aiming to understand at the molecular level how cells, tissues and organism operate in their biological context. Among the key technologies driving this forward are next-generation sequencing and proteomics, as they provide powerful means to determine globally expression levels of genes and proteins. Both fields have matured to a degree that they have now become accessible to researchers in many areas of biology.
This course is targeted at biologists and biochemists who are (or starting to be) involved in both next-generation sequencing and mass spectrometry-based proteomics, but who are not experts in these fields.
