Applications of systems and network approaches to the investigation of human diseases

Dr. Jean-Marc Schwartz
Senior Lecturer
Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health     
University of Manchester, UK

Network and systems-based approaches are increasingly used to study dysregulated molecular components in diseases. By modelling the relations between genes/proteins in an integrative way, we can gain better understanding of the processes and pathways involved in disorders and infer their causal regulators, paving the way for the development of new treatments. In this seminar, we will describe different approaches enabling us to model disease systems. First, we will present a Boolean modelling technique applied to understand the mechanisms of action of Herceptin, a drug which is widely used to treat breast cancer but whose action is hampered in some cases by the development of resistance in tumour cells. Next, we will present an integration of network analysis with gene expression (RNA-sequencing) data applied to the study of skeletal diseases, and show how this integration helps to discover new pathways and regulators involved in these disorders.
