What is the course about?
Signalling pathways and networks are very important to regulate and control cellular processes, cell fate, and their malfunctions often lead to diseases, such as cancer or diabetes. This course provides an introductory overview of the most useful resources and tools to investigate signalling pathways and networks, and also introduces basic approaches to model signalling events. The hands-on training will give a wide overview of tools and concepts related to signalling networks.
What will I Learn?
In this course you will learn how to use Cytoscape, where to find the most reliable signaling data, how to reconstruct, analyze and visualize a network. You will also learn how to develop your own models, mostly with logic modelling, what other modelling approaches exist, and how you can apply a model for your own research work.
