At the University of Manchester, UK, we have over 10 years experience in 
running a range of online courses in computational biology.  These 
courses are designed to enable biologists and computer scientists to 
update their skills while remaining in the workplace.  They are also 
very suitable for home study, helping you to keep in touch with a 
research environment while taking a career break.

The courses beginning on 5 October 2009 include:

Introduction to Bioinformatics
Bioinformatics for Systems Biology

'Introduction for Bioinformatics' covers the methods and resources for 
sequence data.  It would be a useful course for people interested in 
areas such as metagenomics or multi-locus sequence typing.

We are also have funding from the BBSRC (http://www.bbsrc.ac.uk/) to 
develop new courses in computational systems biology.  The first of 
these courses, Bioinformatics for Systems Biology, is running in 
October.  It will be followed by :

Mathematics for metabolic modelling and
Computational simulation and analysis of biochemical networks

You will find further information, including fees and a link to the 
online application form, here:

questions, or need advice on the suitability of the courses for your own 
professional development, please contact Heather.Vincent from manchester.ac.uk
