There will be about six bi-weekly assignments and weekly tutorial sessions.
(a) topological properties of networks (after Mark Newman: Networks – An Introduction)
- centrality measures (chapter 7)
- graph partitioning (chapter 11)
- epidemics on networks (chapter 17)
(b) probabilistic networks (after Daphne Koller & Nir Friedman; Probabilistic Graphical Models
(c) reconstructing gene-regulatory networks
- … examples from the current literature …
no formal requirements,
prior participation in bioinformatics III lecture is helpful but not required,
solid programming experience is recommended for completing the assignments.
