    Hi!

    I'm afraid I don't know anything about King's College. But this course is pretty good, I think it was started in the beginning of 00's. Bio courses are taught mostly by biologists who are working in the various research institutes in Edinburgh, like the Stem Cell Research Institute. Don't forget that Dolly was cloned here .

    Bioinformatics people take also a good number of machine learning courses which are pretty useful. But generally, you have eligible to choose any informatics course you want. Moreover, you can even change the title of your degree.

    Hi,

    There is a link to the Bioinformatics 1 page http://www.inf.ed.ac.uk/teaching/courses/2009/bio1.html - you can check the reading list in the bottom. Unfortunately, you can't access the page with lecture slides outside of the university network.

    And this is Bio2 http://www.inf.ed.ac.uk/teaching/courses/2009/bio2.html you can even check lecture slides
