WP8: Graduate Level teaching | ENFIN

The European Network of Excellence, ENFIN, is committed to providing a Europe-wide integration of computational approaches in systems biology

WP8: Graduate Level teaching

Activity type: COORD

Principal Partner(s):

Objectives

  • Develop course materials for an intensive graduate course in systems biology
  • Run one course within the first 18 months

Description

We will leverage the successful European School of Bioinformatics established by the BioSapiens network and will provide extensions to their cirriculum for Computational approaches in Systems Biology. The European School of Bioinformatics is held twice a year in a different country every time and will be followed, in the same location, by a workshop on one of the topics of interest of the network. It will consist of a six days entry level for inexperienced users and newcomers to the field. We have already contacted the BioSapiens coordinators to coordinate activities such that we would provide one of the two courses from our second year of activity. The course will have both theoretical and practical components, and the course materials will also be available from the ENFIN web site (and linked from the BioSapiens web site). The aim would be to provide a seamless educational environment from Genome Annotation (BioSapiens) to Systems Biology (ENFIN). The materials will also be of use to individual Masters courses in bioinformatics and biological information.

This course would also make extensive use of the documentation resource developed by Workpackage 9.
