Online training in maths and computing for the bioscience research community


Our aim is to develop participants' maths and computing skills and support effective interdisciplinary research and collaboration. These are increasingly important in research and have been highlighted as priority areas by the BBSRC and MRC in a recent report on training provision.

Our modules cover introductory and advanced techniques in maths and computing for use in interdisciplinary bioresearch.

Participants learn how to use MATLAB to model, simulate and analyse biological systems, and how to use R statistics package to analyse data.


Module 1 - Introduction in Quantitative Skills for Bioscience
  • Introduction to MATLAB programming
  • Working with networks
  • Modelling systems
  • Statistical analysis using R
Module 2 - Advanced Quantitative Skills for Bioscience
  • Discrete systems
  • Principal Component Analysis (PCA)
  • Bistable systems
  • Spatio-temporal systems
  • Stochastic systems
  • Parameter fitting (classical & Bayesian)
Module 3 - Individual Research Project (Currently Unavailable)
Apply the skills you have developed to a topic of interest in your own area of research with support from the SysMIC team.
