S* Alliance - BioInformatics Education
A global, unified bioinformatics learning environment

From the S* website:

S* (pronounced as 'S Star') is a collaboration between the following universities and institutions:

University of Sydney, Australia; Karolinska Institutet, Sweden; University of Uppsala, Sweden; National University of Singapore, Singapore; University of the Western Cape, South Africa; Stanford University, USA; University of California, San Diego , USA.

The S* group of teaching institutions have formed a global alliance to provide a global, unified bioinformatics learning environment (GLOBULE) made up of modular courses in the disciplines of genomics, bioinformatics, and medical informatics.

The initial aims of GLOBULE are to:

-  Make a jointly provided globally accessible online course for training in bioinformatics and genomics.

-  Provide accessibility to the highest possible quality of online courseware available in the world today.

-  Provide high quality assessment, grading and courseware that has been approved by the educators from the host institutions.

-  Develop an integrated modular learning environment that allows a student to select from both pre-requisite modules and advanced modules in order to build a comprehensive program in genomics and bioinformatics.
