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.

Frecuentemente nos llegan noticias sobre la aparición de nuevas infecciones virales: un nuevo virus de la gripe H7N9 en China, una nueva cepa de coronavirus en Oriente Medio, fiebres tropicales y dengue en el sur de Europa, la reciente epidemia de Ébola en África o el Chikungunya en América. En este curso explicaremos qué es un virus y cómo se multiplica, hablaremos del origen del virus del SIDA y de cómo se originan los nuevos virus de la gripe. Veremos cómo ha sido la epidemia de Ébola y qué papel juegan los mosquitos en la trasmisión de los virus. Contestaremos a estas y a otras muchas preguntas en un lenguaje científico pero muy divulgativo.
