OpenMultiMed Cost Training School in Systems Bioinformatics towards Network Medicine

Nicosia, Cyprus 2018


  • This training school is organized as a three-day interactive training from Tuesday 29 May to Thursday 31 May 2018 at the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING) in Nicosia, Cyprus. Every day a high-level lecturer will share expertise with the students, focusing on systems medicine, with theory and interactive sessions.

  • The theme of the Training School will be: 

        “Systems bioinformatics towards network medicine” 

Systems Bioinformatics is a relatively new approach, which lies in the intersection of systems biology and classical bioinformatics. It focuses on integrating information across different levels using a bottom-up approach as in systems biology with a data-driven top-down approach as in bioinformatics. The advent of omics technologies has provided the stepping-stone for the emergence of Systems Bioinformatics. These technologies provide a spectrum of information ranging from genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics to epigenomics, pharmacogenomics, metagenomics and metabolomics. Systems Bioinformatics is the framework in which systems approaches are applied to such data, setting the level of resolution as well as the boundary of the system of interest and studying the emerging properties of the system as a whole rather than the sum of the properties derived from the system’s individual components.  A key approach in Systems Bioinformatics is the construction of multiple networks representing each level of the omics spectrum and their integration in a layered network that exchanges information within and between layers.  The aim of this Training School is to familiarize and provide proper skills to the trainees regarding the emerging field of Systems Bioinformatics and Network Based approaches towards Network Medicine.
  • The training school also features renowned invited speakers from prestigious universities and institutions worldwide.
  • The training school is organized within the framework of the COST Action CA15129 - Open Multiscale Systems Medicine (OpenMultiMed)
