At the University of Manchester, UK, we have over 10 years experience in
teaching a range of online courses in computational biology. Programme
participants can take one or two courses for professional development,
or can apply to complete a formal qualification. For example, the
following courses will provide many of the key skills required for
biological data analysis:
Biocomputing (perl and database design)
Mathematics for metabolic modelling (An introduction to modelling
approaches, using R)
Bioinformatics for Systems Biology (An introduction to biological networks.)
Introduction to microarray data analysis, using Bioconductor
Each course, which is paced to suit those in full-time employment, runs
over 16 teaching weeks.
The next courses begin on 4 October 2010 and you can also book early for
the courses running in March 2011. Early booking is advisable, as some
courses do fill up quickly.

If you have any questions, or would like advice on the options, please

Professional Education (ape from cs.man.ac.uk).
