Course description

The contextualization of molecular signatures such as sets of differentially expressed genes from transcriptomics experiments, requires mapping to known biological pathways and networks. In this workshop the utility of molecular interaction networks for data interpretation is explained and the visual exploration of biological networks with the popular program Cytoscape is described. This workshop also gives an introduction to commonly used pathway resources and describes approaches to identify enriched pathways from gene expression data.
