The new distance learning course, Basics of software development in 
Java, is designed to prepare those with a first degree in a biological 
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, 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
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

The module fee for 2004/2005 is £750.  You will find further
