May 7 - May 11, 2007
Epigenomics Project, Genopole®, Évry, France (near Paris)

   Various types of biological networks will be covered with some methodological counterparts, one per day. The spirit of the School is very interdisciplinary, with lectures in any single day covering a diversity of viewpoints on a single, albeit wide-ranging, topic. It also puts some emphasis on a transversal view cutting across subfields within biology. The pedagogic goal of this Training Course is to bring the audience to top level in the above-defined field of investigation. To reach this goal, world- renowned specialists from the target field deliver 36 hours of lectures and question / answer sessions. Some practical tutorials will be presented during the last day. Care is exercised to allow for ample informal discussions between and among lecturers and participants, so that the Advanced Course also acts as a melting pot and gives a chance to individual training arrangements.

We anticipate that participants will typically range from the doctoral and early-stage postdoctoral fellow to the young principal investigator. They will be selected by the Scientific Board on the basis of an initial high/medium skill on biological networks.
