The Bioinformatics of Protein Structure, March 2009
The Bioinformatics of Protein Structure, offered by the University of
Leeds, is one of a number of online courses run jointly with The
University of Manchester.
Like all of our distance courses, it is delivered in a Virtual Learning
Environment that allows us to extend the classroom into the web. Each
course, which is paced to suit those in full-time employment, runs over
16 teaching weeks.
The aim of this course is for the participant to first acquire a
knowledge of the basic mechanisms of protein evolution. Students will
then use their knowledge to inform and guide the process of relating
protein structure, function and primary sequence data.
