For the past two years, I have used my expertise in bioinformatics, particularly my familiarity with R and Bioconductor, to assist in teaching bioinformatics courses for the MOAC MSc students and first year System's Biology students. I assisted by holding classes on how to get started using the statistical programming language R and its bioinformatics packkage set, Bioconductor. I also assisted with student's project work in various work sessions throughout the course.

Tutors: Hugo Van Den Berg, Helen Bird
Date: December 2005

Assisted teaching of MOAC course CH923 by organising a session describing how to use R to analyse microarray data, by utilising the bioinformatic libraries contained in Bioconductor.

Tutors: Andrew Mead , Helen Bird, James Lynn 
Date: January 2007

Assisted teaching of MOAC course CH923 by organising an introduction to R session, together with Martin Edwards and Peter Cock, in which we outlined the basic usages of the statistical programming language R and how it can be used in bioinformatic based data analysis.

Course notes and an introduction to R can be found here.

Also helped out at help classes, run by Andrew Mead, to assist MOAC students in solving example bioinformatic problems.
