At the University of Manchester, UK, we have over 10 years experience in
teaching a range of distance 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)
Bioinformatics for Systems Biology (An introduction to biological networks.)
Mathematics for metabolic modelling (An introduction to modelling
approaches, using R)
Introduction to microarray data analysis, using Bioconductor (This
course has been updated to include an introduction to RNA-seq)
Each course, which is paced to suit those in full-time employment, runs
over 16 teaching weeks.
The next courses begin on 7 March 2011. For further information, please
