2012 Topics in Computational & Systems Biology

    Table of contents
    1. 1. Schedule
    2. 2. Topics

    We will discuss aspects of biological networks in biology at the molecular level (systems biology).  Biological networks include regulatory networks, protein-protein interaction networks, metabolic networks and many others.

    This is not an inclusive list until more of the participants contribute.  My initial list of topics includes, but is not limited to:

    • Scale-free networks
      • Are biological networks scale free?
      • If they are, what does this tell us about biology?
    • Network Evolution
      • How do networks grow and change over the course of evolution?
      • Do network models inform us about the evolutionary process?
    • Analysis of network topology
      • Hubs and bottlenecks.
      • Identifying critical points in networks?
      • Are topological defined parts of networks (such as hubs or bottlenecks) associated with biological properties such as
        • Conserved function
        • Targets of disease or infection
        • Protein disorder
        • Gene duplication or rapid evolution
    • Networks in development and disease (methods for network understanding and analysis)
    • Identification of important pathways or functional modules
