Biological & Life Sciences

Health Scientists, Nurses, Doctors, Pharmacists and even Neuroscientists can all benefit from, and are sometimes required to do, regular professional development in a scholarly educational setting. However, not all working professionals in the Biological and Life Sciences fields, or other people interested in those fields, have the time to commute to campus for conventional classroom learning. Online courses in Biological and Life Sciences deliver all of the same critical information, research opportunities and student-teacher interaction directly to your home computer.

Programs in Health Systems Finance, Health Informatics, Nursing, Senior Living Management, Clinical Neurology, Psychiatric Therapeutics and more are just a sample of the variety of online courses in Biological and Life Sciences available at top-notch universities and institutions. Lasting from a few days to a year, some online courses in Biological and Life Sciences culminate in the presentation of a diploma or certificate to students who successfully pass the course. Using the latest e-learning technologies, such as satellite conferencing, classroom forums, social networking, file sharing, research databases and much more, universities in Australia, the USA, the UK and around the world offer an excellent educational alternative.

Top Online Courses in Biological & Life Sciences. This free online course aims to raise awareness amongst healthcare professionals of the role of Clinical Bioinformatics and Genomics in healthcare today. We will illustrate how the discipline of Clinical Bioinformatics provides an important bridge between the cutting edge science and the delivery of genomic medicine in clinical practice. By understanding the role of a Clinical Bioinformatician it will become clear how integral they are to ensuring the beneficial opportunities of genomic medicine are fully realised in patient care. Discover the potential of Clinical Bioinformatics This is an exciting time. We are now beginning to sequence whole genomes in the clinic, the most personal information we can have on a patient. We can start to see how genome variants might impact on health and we can direct really precise medicine to individual patients. This is not without its challenges. The genome is a huge amount of information. Identifying the causative variant (the part in the genome that can cause a change in health) is like looking for a needle in a haystack. But what does this phrase actually mean? This course will take you into the world of a Clinical Bioinformatician and show you what they do behind the scenes when finding that needle in the genomic data. It will also show you what happens next and the important contribution Clinical Bioinformatician’s make to the patient’s journey.
