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 research professionals 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 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)
Microarray data analysis (Bioinformatics 2)
Theory and Applications in Bioinformatics

The computing modules are:

C for Bioinformatics
Java
Biocomputing
Object-oriented analysis and design with UML

The module fee for 2002/2003 is £600. You will find further information at:
