At the University of Manchester, UK, we have over 15 years experience in 
teaching a range of online courses in computational biology.  These 
courses are at Masters level, and 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 

The distance MSc in Digital Biology includes the following modules :

Bioinformatics for transcriptomics
Bioinformatics for Systems Biology
Maths for metabolic modelling
Computational Systems Biology

The individual courses can be studied by anyone wishing to apply 
computational methods in their research.  Those wishing to progress to 
the MSc will complete a supported research project.  The topics chosen 
for the research project can range from genomic analysis of 
Streptococcus pneumoniae to modelling the response of the human 
macrophage to Mycobacterium tuberculosis.  These, and other, examples of 
current and completed research projects are listed here :
