Education: Where can I study bioinformatics?
Below are complete, full-time degree programmes rather than on individual study modules. You can go to other places, however, if you are looking for short courses. Rockefeller has a list that is mirrored at various other sites. ICSB also maintains a list.
If you are interested in U.S. programmes, here's a list from Curtin in Australia, and here's a list from Stanford University.
Those wanting to find programmes in the Asia Pacific region could have a look at this resource maintained by the Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Network APBioNet.
In the UK The Bioinformatics Resource (part of the BBSRC's CCP11 project) project maintains (among many other resources) lists of (mainly) British Masters and PhDs in bioinformatics.
Distance or correspondence courses
