Bio-informatics for the Neuroscientist

Du 27 novembre au 10 décembre 2016

Many different disciplines are engaged in neuroscience, from neurophysiology and structural biology to psychiatry and linguistics. They provide each important data, however, reported in a very different format. It becomes increasingly important to be able to retrieve information from this entire multidisciplinary arena through available databases. The well-developed area of Bioinformatics extending from genes to the cellular level, should interface directly with neuroinformatics with its focus on neuroscience, which also includes the systems level and disease mechanisms.

The Cajal Advanced Neuroscience Training “Bioinformatics for the neuroscience” will provide students with a practical knowledge of state of the art bioinformatics and modelling methods used to understand the molecular and cellular basis of neuronal functions and pathologies. The course will feature introductory lectures about theory and tools, practical hands on sessions, and scientific seminars illustrating how bioinformatics answered specific neurobiological questions. We will cover genomics, epigenetics, functional genomics, biological pathways and models of biochemistry and electrophysiology of single neurons.
