The distance learning course, Introduction to Molecular Biology for 
Computer Scientists, will begin again in October 2005.  This course is 
designed to prepare those with a first degree in Computer Science for a 
postgraduate qualification in Bioinformatics.  It can be studied either 
as an individual module, or as an element of the full MSc in 
Bioinformatics at the University of Manchester or the University of 
Leeds, UK.

The MSc modules follow two themes, Bioinformatics and Computer Science. 
  The Bioinformatics modules are:

Introduction to Molecular Biology for Computer Scientists
Introduction to Bioinformatics
Introduction to Microarray Data Analysis
Theory and Applications in Bioinformatics
The Bioinformatics of Protein Structure
The Science of Proteomics
Medicinal Chemistry (offered by the University of California, San Diego)
Molecular Modelling and Structure-based Drug Design

The computing modules are:

Introduction to programming (C or Java)
Intermediate Java
Biocomputing
Object-oriented analysis and design with UML
