BINF 8950 – SYSTEMS BIOLOGY


Systems Biology is about explaining complex traits, such as the clock, development, carbon cycling, and malaria in terms of underlying pathways.  We will introduce omics approaches to identifying  the underlying pathways for such traits.

We are taking a novel educational approach to systems biology using the framework of a collaboratorium, in which students work in collaborative teams on an interdisciplinary project providing the capstone experience for the course.  Each student will develop their own personalized syllabus using a tool call ALICE for Adaptive Learning in an Interdisciplinary Collaborative Environment to solve a systems biology research problem of their team’s choosing.

Time and Place: 4:00 to 5:30 pm Tuesday & Thursday, C128 Life Sciences

The syllabus for the course is available:
