Bacterial Genomes: Disease Outbreaks and Antimicrobial Resistance (FREE COURSE)
: 17 Jun 2020 - 12 Jul 2020
Type: Webinar, Recorded
Explore the genomes of bacteria and the use of genome sequencing to track harmful disease and AMR.
Duration: 3 weeks, 3 hours per week
Certificate of achievement available on satisfactory completion
CPD Approval: Royal College of Pathologists (9 credits), Royal College of Nursing (9 credits)
Start Date: The course is run ‘live’ for 3 weeks from the start date above. Once this period is over there will be no live monitoring of the forums, but you can still join and complete the course during the remaining period.
Why join the course?
The increase in resistance of harmful bacteria to antibiotics is a major global threat to health. Here we explore bacterial genomes and the use of genome sequencing to identify and track these drug resistant bacteria. Join us to discover how genome research is helping scientists and healthcare professionals track disease outbreaks and prevent the rise of antibiotic resistant ‘superbugs’.
Who is the course for?
This course will be of interest to scientists, healthcare professionals, biomedical researchers and bioinformaticians. The course offers all learners an opportunity to learn about genomes, disease, and antimicrobial resistance. You require no previous knowledge of genome science to complete the course.
