Evidence of continuing professional development is increasingly 
important to scientists planning a career move, whether this is to be a 
promotion or a change in direction.

The University of Manchester's online courses in computational biology 
and bioinformatics can help with your career development, being 
specifically designed for biologists needing to update their skills 
while remaining in the workplace.  The courses are also very suitable 
for those interested home study, helping you to keep in touch with a 
research environment during a career break.

The courses running next semester, starting in October 2009, include:

Introduction to Bioinformatics
Bioinformatics for Systems Biology
Introduction to software development in Java
Theory and Applications in Bioinformatics
