Systems Biology and Biotechnology Specialization

Started Oct 16

Systems Biology and Biotechnology Specialization

Expertise for Professionals and Students in Biotechnology and Biomedical Data Sciences

Learn Methodologies in Systems Biology Including: Bioinformatics, Dynamical Modeling, Genomics, Network and Statistical Modeling, Proteomics, Omics Technologies Single Cell Research Technologies

About This Specialization

Design systems-level experiments using appropriate cutting edge techniques, collect big data, and analyze and interpret small and big data sets quantitatively. The Systems Biology Specialization covers the concepts and methodologies used in systems-level analysis of biomedical systems. Successful participants will learn how to use experimental, computational and mathematical methods in systems biology and how to design practical systems-level frameworks to address questions in a variety of biomedical fields. In the final Capstone Project, students will apply the methods they learned in five courses of specialization to work on a research project.
