Online training in maths and computing for the bioscience research community


Overview

SysMIC is an online course developed in association with the BBSRC to provide effective training for the bioscience community. It involves approximately 120 hours of study over six months and has a flexible format designed to fit around research commitments. It is suitable both for PhD students requiring initial training or established researchers looking to enhance and develop their skills portfolio.

The course was put together jointly by academics from UCL, Birkbeck, the Open University and University of Edinburgh and since 2012 over 2,500 researchers have studied the course.

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

The next course is due to begin on Monday 2nd November 2020.
