At the University of Manchester, UK, we now have nearly 15 years 
experience in teaching a range of online courses in computational 
biology. These courses are at Masters level, and are designed to enable 
those with a background in the life sciences, computer science, 
mathematics or related disciplines to update their skills, while 
remaining in the workplace. The courses are also very suitable for home 
study, helping you to keep in touch with a research environment while 
taking a career break.

The distance MSc in Digital Biology includes the following modules:

* Bioinformatics for Systems Biology
* Bioinformatics for transcriptomics
* Maths for metabolic modelling
* Computational Systems Biology

The individual courses can be studied by anyone wishing to apply 
computational methods in their work. Those wishing to progress to the 
MSc will complete a supported research project. The topics chosen for 
the research project can range from the use of next generation sequence 
data to assess variability in einkorn seed accessions to efforts to 
improve crops for semi-arid areas. These, and other, examples of current 
and completed research projects are listed on the projects page.
