Members of this group might be interested in one or more of the online
courses offered by the University of Manchester, UK.  The courses can be 
taken as individual units, or for credits towards a Masters degree.


The courses running next semester, from March 2012, include :

Mathematics for metabolic modelling
Bioinformatics for transcriptomics


'Mathematics for metabolic modelling' is a practical course, designed to 
help biologists to understand mathematical approaches to modelling
biological systems. It is intended to prepare people for our more
advanced course in computational systems biology, which will run again
in October 2012.  Students are introduced to R, which is then used for
the practical exercises.

In 'Bioinformatics for transcriptomics' course participants learn
to use Bioconductor for the practical work.
