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 following courses are running next semester :

     Advanced Sequence Analysis (The October run of this course is 
already full.)
     Programming in C
     Introduction to software development in Java
     Computational Systems Biology
     Visualisation for High Performance Computing


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