Lectures- Systems Biology
Time & Place
Wednesday, 12-13:30 h, K00.015, BioSysM building
This course provides an introduction to high-throughput molecular technologies used in modern biology covering the efficient readout of biomolecules, such as DNA, RNA and proteins for the purpose of understanding complex biological systems in health and disease. Lecture 1 covers the sequencing of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) in bulk, at single-cell, and spatial resolution while Lecture 2 focuses on mass spectrometry-based analysis of proteins and small molecules in cells, tissues and body fluids. The experimental and analytical principles of the key technologies as well as their main applications and relevant examples are covered. All necessary data analysis basics will be taught and exercises including analytical “mini-projects” will allow students to independently acquire and deepen practical skills while benefitting from regular feedback and support.
