The MSc in Bioinformatics at the University of Manchester is well established and leads
to a qualification widely recognised in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
Students study six taught modules and then undertake a research project.
Web-based options make these modules available to those wishing to study part-time.
Participants communicate with the course tutors and with each other using bulletin
boards and chat rooms for on-line tutorials. They also have access to the Distance
Learning Service provided by the University Library.
We now offer eight taught modules, which may be studied individually, or as part of a
formal qualification. The modules follow two themes, Bioinformatics and
Computer Science. The Bioinformatics modules are:
Introduction to Molecular Biology for Computer Scientists
Introduction to Bioinformatics (Bioinformatics 1)
Post Genomic Bioinformatics (Bioinformatics 2)
Theory and Applications in Bioinformatics
The computing modules are:
C for Bioinformatics
Object-oriented analysis and design with UML
The module fee for 2002/2003 is £600. You will find further information at:
