Members of this group might be interested in the University of 
Manchester's distance learning course on molecular interaction networks.

The course, 'Bioinformatics for Systems Biology' 
(http://octette.cs.man.ac.uk/bioinformatics/modules/systemsbiology.html), covers 
the use of networks for the integration and visualisation of biological 
data.  It could be taken as a single course, or with one or more of our 
other Masters level courses in Digital Biology.  Our other online 
courses include :

Mathematics for metabolic modelling
Bioinformatics for transcriptomics
Computational Systems Biology

Bioinformatics for Systems Biology covers:

* the use of models in biology
* structure and use of public pathway and interaction databases
* reconstruction of biological networks from experimental data
* network statistics
* integration of transcriptome data with a network
* advanced topics

The final section will prepare participants for our advanced course in 
'Computational Systems Biology'.

You will find links to all of our online courses here :

have questions about any course, please contact the tutor named on the 
course information page.  For general queries about the programme, and
