Come and explore the basics of Microbiology and Forensic Science so you can better understand the world around you. Have you ever thought about infectious diseases and why we get infected? What is the causative agent? In this course you will be touring through four modules, starting by taking a close look at the bacterial cell structure and functions which will then lead you to the study of viruses. You will go through the differences in the different types of cells which will allow you to distinguish the two major groups of bacteria and techniques. Next, you will focus on Forensic Microbiology, its history and how this discipline has evolved. Finally, we will look at the latest molecular techniques used for detecting microbes’ genetic material.

En este curso, hablaremos sobre del origen y evolución de los microbios, de su biodiversidad, los encontraremos al borde del cráter de un volcán o en las aguas del mar Muerto, estudiaremos su papel en el ciclo de la vida, explicaremos cómo gracias a las bacterias las plantas fijan el nitrógenos del aire o las vacas son capaces de comer hierba, y veremos cómo nosotros mismos estamos repletos de microbios que son incluso beneficiosos para nuestra salud.
