We continue to offer a range of online courses in bioinformatics, health 
informatics and systems biology.  The courses beginning in March 2011 
include :

Introduction to microarray data analysis
Introduction to BioHealth Informatics
Mathematics for metabolic modelling

Our popular microarray course has been extended this year to include a 
short section on RNA-seq.

BioHealth Informatics is a rapidly developing multi-disciplinary field 
that combines biological and genetic information with clinical data and 
computer information systems.  This new online course has been developed 
from our experience in teaching biohealth informatics on campus.

Mathematics for metabolic modelling is designed to prepare people for 
our advanced web-based course in Computational Systems Biology, which 
runs in October.

All of our courses are designed to enable those with a background in the 
life sciences, computer science, mathematics or related disciplines to 
update their skills, while remaining in the workplace.  The courses are 
also very suitable for home study, helping you to keep in touch with a 
research environment while taking a career break.
