The University of Manchester's distance learning course on molecular 
interaction networks might be useful for members of this group who are 
interested in toxicogenomics or systems toxicology.

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 
to apply, please mail our office for Advanced Professional Education
