Description: Networks are the ideal structure to represent complex systems. A network compromises objects as nodes that can represent factors at any level of biological complexity (genes, proteins, cells, organs, diseases,…) and relations between them as edges (e.g. regulation, association, activation,…). In this tutorial session, you will learn how networks can be used in biomedical research to visualize, analyse and extend biological networks. After a short introduction lecture (20-30 minutes), you will go through a step-by-step network analysis tutorial using Cytoscape (www.cytoscape.org). We will use the same dataset as in the pathway analysis tutorial.
