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 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 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
Computational simulation and analysis of biochemical networks
