Theory and Applications in Bioinformatics is a distance learning course 
from the University of Manchester, UK.  It will of interest to those who 
need to gain confidence in the use of statistics for molecular 
evolution.  The course covers:

	Introduction to Probability and Statistics using Matlab
	Traditional Sequence Alignment and Search
	Introduction to Probabilistic Sequence Models
	Markov Chains and HMM Applications
	Phylogenetic Methods

This is a Masters level course, so credits can count towards the MSc in 
Bioinformatics. 
(http://www.ls.manchester.ac.uk/postgraduate/distancelearning/).

The course is delivered in a Virtual Learning Environment, which allows 
us to extend the classroom into the web.  Teaching and learning are 
focussed around tutor-supported exercises.  Additional information is
