recruits worldwide.  We are now delighted to be able to announce a 
number of full scholarships for entry in October 2007.  Applicants must 
be nationals of an African Commonwealth country, and currently working 
in an African Commonwealth country.

The MSc programme has six modules and a research project.  The modules 
currently available are listed below, and new options are being developed.

Introduction to Bioinformatics

The research project will be carried out in the workplace and will be

and analysis of microarray data from mice susceptible or resistant to 
infection with Trichuris muris.
