At the University of Manchester, UK, we now have nearly 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 distance MSc in Digital Biology includes the following modules:
* Introduction to Health Informatics
* Introduction to BioHealth Informatics
* Data Modelling and Databases
* Bioinformatics for transcriptomics
The individual courses can be studied by anyone wishing to apply computational methods in their work. Those wishing to progress to the MSc will complete a supported research project. The topics chosen for the research project can range from oncology bioinformatics to an assessment of risk stratification strategies in intensive care medicine. These, and other, examples of current and completed research projects are listed on the projects page.
