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. ### What do people say about this course? "_I would definitely point students to this resource. Text, videos, and figures were all very well done._" Pablo Tsukayama, Assistant Professor of Microbiology "_A highlight of the course was the introduction to whole genome sequencing – new information for me._" Christine Laws, Medical Doctor “_Exchanging genetic information quickly throughout the world is clearly going to revolutionise the ability to combat disease._” Prue van der Hoorn, Artist # Programme and start dates ### Course start dates This course is repeated twice a year.
