World Wide Web Tutorials and Courses

The CMBI offers a number of courses on Bioinformatics and Cheminformatics topics, which are described elsewhere, as well as a number of interactive webtutorials which you can find here.

These online tutorials are available for anyone to browse, but we know from years of experience teaching computational biology and chemistry courses at the CMBI that doing carefully designed exercises with an experienced instructor close at hand is the best way to learn.

While you are doing the tutorials, you are welcome to contact the instructors by e-mail to ask questions, sort out problems, or to ask for hints on completing any troublesome exercises. And of course, we welcome suggestions for improvements!
