  • Bacterial Genomes: Disease Outbreaks and Antimicrobial Resistance

    1 January - 31 December 2021

    Bacterial Genomes: Disease Outbreaks and Antimicrobial Resistance https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bacterial-genomes-disease-outbreaks-and-antimicrobial-resistance-b178602b-e29f-4ac7-afbf-5deafd52f8dd # Overview * **Duration**: There is no longer a live period for this course, and there will be no live monitoring of the forums, but you can still join and complete the course throughout 2021. * Free * Certificate of achievement available on satisfactory completion * **CPD Approval**: Royal College of Pathologists (9 credits), Royal College of Nursing (9 credits)** ** ### 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. ### 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 ### What topics will you cover? * Diseases caused by bacteria * What bacterial genomes look like * Genome sequencing technology * Mechanisms of transmission and resistance * Genomic epidemiology – tracking the spread of bacterial pathogens * Antimicrobial resistance ### What will you achieve? By the end of the course, you'll be able to... * Explain why some bacteria are pathogenic * Explore the structure of bacterial genomes * Describe the uses of different genome sequencing technologies * Investigate how genome data are used to track the spread of bacterial disease * Discuss the role of genome sequencing in stopping the spread of antimicrobial resistance # Educators ## **Lead Educators** **[Dr Adam Reid][1]** I am a senior staff scientist at the Wellcome Sanger Institute near Cambridge in the United Kingdom. I'm interested in using genomics and bioinformatics to better understand infectious diseases. **[Dr Josie Bryant][2]** I am a Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow in the University of Cambridge, Department of Medicine. I am working on bacterial genomics and evolution with a focus on within-patient microbial diversity ### Dr Francesca Short I am a scientist at the Wellcome Sanger Institute. I am interested in using functional genomics techniques to understand infections caused by the bacterium _Klebsiella pneumoniae_. ## **Programme Lead Educator** **[Professor Nicholas Thomson][3]** I am a Group Leader at the Wellcome Sanger Institute. I provide scientific oversight for this course. I am interested in bacterial evolution and the spread of infectious disease. ### The course also features interviews with distinguished scientists, including: * **[Mathew Beale][4]** - Wellcome Sanger Institute * **[Daryl Domman][5]** - Wellcome Sanger Institute * **[Gal Horesh][6]** - Wellcome Sanger Institute * **[Catherine Ludden][7]** - London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine * **[Tapoka Mkandawire][8]** - Wellcome Sanger Institute * **[Julian Parkhill][9]** - Wellcome Sanger Institute * **Lindsay Pike** - Wellcome Sanger Institute * **[Michael Quail][10]** - Wellcome Sanger Institute * **[Susannah J.
