The [course_title] course teaches you a new way of studying microbiology from a systems perspective, considering microbial diversity, population dynamics, and genomics. The spotlight will be given to the delicate balance between microbes and humans. You will also explore the changes that result in the emergence of infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance. Through a case study approach, you will know about vaccines, toxins, biodefense, and infections including Legionnaire’s disease, tuberculosis, Helicobacter pylori, and plague.
