At the University of Manchester, UK, we have over 10 years experience in
teaching a range of online courses in bioinformatics.  Following a
recent review of our online programme, we are now offering new themes in
health informatics and systems biology.  Students may combine courses to
best suit their needs for professional development.  For example, the
following courses will provide key skills required for biological data

Biocomputing (perl and database design)
Mathematics for metabolic modelling (An introduction to mathematical
modelling, using R)
Bioinformatics for Systems Biology
Introduction to microarray data analysis, using Bioconductor

The courses are delivered in a Virtual Learning Environment,
which allows us to extend the classroom into the web.  We use a range of
tools to support our online teaching activities.

Each course, which is paced to suit those in full-time employment, runs
over 16 teaching weeks.

Teaching and learning are focussed around tutor-supported exercises.
Participants who wish to be assessed for credits at Masters level must
complete additional independent research for assessment

The next courses begin on 4 October 2010 and you can also book early for
the courses running in March 2011.  Early booking is advisable, as some
courses do fill up quickly.
