Summary of Week 3

This week we introduced some freely available technologies for analysing bacterial genomes

We investigated how antibiotic resistance genes and mutations can be detected in bacterial genomes and used to predict antibiotic resistance. We used online tools to upload and interpret genomic data. We also worked on the application and interpretation of phylogenetic trees to study the transmission and evolution of AMR clones. We used Microreact to investigate real cases of local, national and international transmission of AMR.

At the end of this final week of the course you will now have an opportunity to test your learning and potentially download the free Certificate.

The final step is the course test consisting of ten multiple choice questions covering all of the material from the course. This is a Sponsored course, which means that you can obtain a free Certificate once you become eligible. To be eligible, you must mark at least 90% of the steps in this course as complete and attain an Assessment score in the test that follows, of 70% or greater. You will have to try answering all of the questions and will have three attempts allowed for each of the question.

We wish you success with the final assessment!
