At the University of Manchester, UK, we have over 10 years experience in
teaching a range of online courses in computational biology.  These
courses are designed to enable those with a background in the life
sciences, computer science, mathematics or related disciplines to update
their skills, while remaining in the workplace.  The courses are also
very suitable for home study, helping you to keep in touch with a
research environment while taking a career break.

The next courses begin on 4 October 2010.  Bioinformatics for Systems
(http://octette.cs.man.ac.uk/bioinformatics/modules/BIOL61820.html) is
already full, but there are still places available on :

Introduction to software development in Java
Introduction to Health Informatics
Computational Systems Biology

You can also book early for the courses running in March 2011.  The
March courses will include :

Mathematics for metabolic modelling
Introduction to BioHealth Informatics
Introduction to microarray data analysis
Databases and data modelling
Object-oriented analysis and design with UML

A module can be studied as a single short course, or you can choose to
register for a formal qualification.  Those wishing to progress to the
MSc will complete a supported research project.  Examples of projects
that have been published in a range of journals are listed here :
