Manchester Informatics (http://www.informatics.manchester.ac.uk/) is 
pleased to announce the award of funding to develop two new distance 
courses in Systems Biology.  These new courses will follow from our 
existing course, Bioinformatics for Systems Biology.

Bioinformatics for Systems Biology will enable the successful student to:

explain the need for models of systems;
understand network layouts;
understand the use of protein-protein interaction networks in function 
prediction.

The last section of this course introduces dynamic models.  The details 
are available here : 
http://octette.cs.man.ac.uk/bioinformatics/modules/index.html

The two new courses will be :

Mathematics for metabolic modelling
Computational simulation and analysis of biochemical networks

'Mathematics for metabolic modelling' will provide the necessary 
mathematical background for the second course, 'Computational simulation 
and analysis of biochemical networks'. The software used will include 
Cytoscape and CellDesigner.
