Cells, tissues, organs and organisms are systems of components whose interactions have been defined, refined, and optimised over hundreds of millions of years of evolution. Computational systems biology is a field that aims at a system-level understanding of biological systems by analysing biological data using computational techniques. Systems biology aims to answer the following key questions by integrating experimental and computational approaches:
- What are the basic structures and properties of the biological networks in a living cell?
- How does a biological system behave over time under various conditions?
- How does a biological system maintain its robustness and stability?
- How can we modify or construct biological systems to achieve desired properties?
During this course, we will come across many interesting open research problems. Taking this course might be an excellent way to create research topics and projects for your Master's or Ph.D. thesis in the area of bioinformatics/computational biology. In this course, you will be able to communicate and work with students and researchers with varied backgrounds. In addition, Virginia Tech is humming with research activities in this area.my home page.
Computer Science graduate students: the Data and Algorithm Analysis (CS 4104) or similar course is a pre-requisite. It will help if you also have taken Algorithms in Bioinformatics (CS 5124) and a course on combinatorics and graph theory such as Applied Combinatorics (MATH 3134). An introductory molecular biology course such as Paradigms for Bioinformatics will provide extremely useful biological background.
Life science graduate students: I expect that you have taken courses in biochemistry, cell biology, and molecular biology. A course like Computation for Life Sciences (CS 5045) provides very useful computational background.
The course will primarily be driven by lectures and by seminars where groups of students present a related group of papers from literature. I will try to arrange papers that cover both biological and computational aspects. Ideally, I would like a group to contain students with backgrounds in computer science, mathematics, and/or statistics and students with backgrounds in biology and chemistry.
Your grade will depend on your presentation (20%), on class participation (30%), and a final project (50%). The final project is a group software project. I will define software projects that are inspired by the papers you present in class. The project will involve creating some new software or using existing software innovatively combined with some intensive biological analysis of the results.

- Human cancer data sets: a good source is the data sets section of the Cancer Genomics research group at MIT's Whitehead Institute. The following links point to local copies of some of these data sets:
- Yeast data sets: an excellent source is the
Expression Junction section of the
Genome Database. I could not find any direct
link to a site containing all the data sets, so
you have to click on each individual web
supplement to download the data. I have linked to
some local copies below.

are not regulatory networks per se but are
binary (0-1) matrices that state whether than binding
site for a particular transcription factor appears in
the promotor region of a gene.
