Tags: C6. Models

Description

C6. Explore and/or model biological interactions, networks and data integration using bioinformatics. Modeling of biological systems at all levels, from cellular to ecological, is being facilitated by technological and algorithmic advances. These models provide novel insights into the perturbations in systems that can cause disease, interactions of microbes with various eukaryotic systems, how metabolic networks respond to environmental stresses, etc. Students should be familiar with the techniques used to generate these analyses and should be able to interpret the outputs and use the data to generate novel hypotheses.

  • Predict impact of a gene knockout on a cell-signaling pathway.
  • Analyze gene expression data to build an expression network.
  • Analyze metagenomics data from microbial samples obtained from environmental sources.
