New ways of working
Cutting-edge bioscience is critically dependent on the availability of modern research infrastructure and the adoption of new ways of working (including novel technology, data resources and mathematical techniques). BBSRC supports these through training students and researchers in the latest skills and techniques, ensuring that the UK bioscience base has the capability to continue to drive forward global scientific research.
- Exploiting new ways of working enabling theme
- Skills surveys identified maths, statistics and computations as among the skills areas where the UK bioscience base was vulnerable
- e-Learning for Systems Approaches: consortium developed web-based courses providing modular training in the theoretical components of systems biology across the UK bioscience community
