Education: Online training in bioinformatics @ The University of Manchester
Submitted by Heather Vincent; posted on Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Submitter 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 break.

The following courses are running next semester:
* Advanced Sequence Analysis+++
* Programming in C
* Introduction to software development in Java
* Computational Systems Biology
* Visualisation for High Performance Computing

+++ The October run of this course is already full. If you are interested in our next course in handling high-throughput sequence (HTS) data, please complete the enquiry form ([link])

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. Previous topics chosen for the research project range from "Identification of differential transcription in Drosophila embryos from tiling microarray data" to "Protein interaction networks related to differences in infection susceptibility in Trypanosoma congolense infected mice". Other examples of current and completed research projects are listed here : [link]
