Systems Biology Courses

Institute core members and fellows produce systems biology courses. Lectures and class discussions emphasize the fundamentals about biological complexity. Experimental and computational approaches are reviewed to help answer basic questions about the organizational and mechanistic nature of signaling systems coupled to biological networks. There are examples presented about genetic circuits that process and integrate molecular information to control development, physiology, evolution, and disease resistance. Some lectures demonstrate how heterogeneous database analyses and dynamical modeling uncover molecular relationships among interacting components. Research studies about the common regulatory motifs used for communication among cells and the collective behaviors that they enable are discussed.
