This is a reminder for those people considering taking our online
course, which begins again in March 2009.

The application deadline is 13 February.  However, it is advisable to
apply before the deadline to allow time for any questions in processing
your application.

I have included the course outline below; the full details are on our
website
(http://octette.cs.man.ac.uk/bioinformatics/modules/BIOL61010.html).  If
you have any questions, or need advice on the module options, please
contact Heather.Vincent from manchester.ac.uk

This course focuses on microarray analysis in the context of modelling 
for a systems approach to biology. Course participants will work through 
practical examples using maxdview, a visualisation environment for 
microarray data from The University of Manchester, and/or Bioconductor.

The course is designed to be taken either as a stand-alone course for 
those already working with microarrays, or as a final module for those 
working towards a formal qualification in bioinformatics. In the context 
of the full programme in bioinformatics, the module builds on the 
methods covered in the earlier module, Introduction to Bioinformatics 
(http://octette.cs.man.ac.uk/bioinformatics/modules/bs6061.html).
