The [[Bioinformatics Organization]] offers professional development courses for continuing scientific education. These are short, postgraduate-level courses on computational topics of interest to prospective and practicing researchers in the life sciences. Course titles and descriptions are below. ''Click [http://edu.bioinformatics.org/calendar/view.php?view=upcoming here] for a calendar of educational events.'' We offer online and on-site courses, most of which can be customized for the needs of companies or organizations. Please contact us for further details.

For online courses, the Bioinformatics Organization uses a system for streaming the multimedia of live lectures. It incorporates the following features:
+
-
 
+
-
* Full A/V streaming from the instructor's computer to the students' computers
+
-
* Ability to show the instructor's desktop on the students' computers
+
-
* Ability to share PowerPoint slides and to use graphical "call-outs" with the students
+
-
* IM-style text chat between students and the instructor

==Computer science topics==
+
-
 
+
-
Level-100 courses in computer science use laboratory scenarios and data to introduce biologists to fundamental computing topics.
+
-
 
+
-
Our CS101 courses are for biologists who are unfamiliar with some or all of the computer languages and tools used in the bioinformatics discipline. And our CS102 courses build upon the concepts introduced in the respective CS101 courses.  CS102 courses are project-based and use take-home assignments to acquaint the biologist with larger and more complex computing problems.
+
-
 
+
-
'''Computer Programming Series:'''
+
-
 
+
-
* [[CS101A Perl for Biologists, Level 1]]
+
-
* [[CS102A Perl for Biologists, Level 2]]
+
-
* [[CS103A Perl for Biologists, Level 3]]
+
-
 
+
-
* [[CS101B R for Biologists, Level 1]]
+
-
* [[CS102B R for Biologists, Level 2]]
+
-
 
+
-
* [[CS101C MySQL for Biologists, Level 1|CS101C MySQL for Biologists, Level 1]]

==Math topics==
+
-
 
+
-
Level-100 courses in math use laboratory scenarios and data to introduce biologists to essential topics in mathematics.
+
-
 
+
-
Our MA101 courses are for biologists who are unfamiliar with some or all of the mathematical methods used in the bioinformatics discipline.
+
-
 
+
-
'''Biostatistics Series:'''
+

==Site License==
+
-
 
+
-
We also offer a site license option for those individuals and organizations interested in getting unlimited access to multiple course offerings. The video lectures are pre-recorded, attendees can watch them on the internet, and download all the other course materials. The instructors are still available to answer your questions, or clarify any issues pertaining to the materials. Rather than taking each course separately, this offers significant savings to organizations, and even individuals! To get more detailed information about the various options available, go to the [[educational site license|site license page]].
