In order to capture nonlinear relationships and complex interactions, network analyses are applied in many different biological contexts. This module will provide hands-on experience in the analysis of two specific types of biological networks—gene co-expression networks and gene regulatory networks. During the module, faculty will review the scientific theory involved in these methods and then participants will apply the theory to real data sets. After completing the module, participants should to be able to apply these methods in their own research.

Module Goals

  • Understand the theoretical concepts behind gene co-expression and gene regulatory networks.
  • Understand how to apply several existing gene co-expression and gene regulatory methods.
