Antibiotic resistance - principle and strategies

About this course

The course will cowl subjects associated to resistance with fundamental definitions and an outline of antibiotic use and the emergence and unfold of resistance. The course will information you thru the ideas and significance of spreading and disseminating drug resistance and the way it occurs. It would present you ways micro organism change into resistant and what mechanism they will use to do that. And as a part of the course, additionally, you will obtain coaching in antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) strategies and particular resistance detection in microbiology laboratories with the essential strategies out there. and deal with getting good high quality outcomes that may be interpreted and used for various functions.

Week 1

Welcome to the course

This module is principally a welcome to the course as yow will discover details about the Course construction, what you’ll study within the subsequent modules, grading, introduction to the teacher. members and instructing supplies.

Module A- Antibacterial and Antimicrobial Motion

Antibiotics and antibacterial motion (contains two lectures and a quiz). Right here you’ll study lots about antibiotics / antimicrobials and you’ll know extra about: what they’re, the place they arrive from, what are the principle teams and the way can we classify them, the consequences How are they, what are their results? on bacterial cells


Week 2

Module B – Antibacterial and Antibacterial

This module accommodates info on antibiotic substances and the event of resistance in micro organism together with the causes of resistance and their mechanisms, in addition to perception into how resistance is widespread. and the way it may be chosen.


Week 3

Module C- Antibiotic susceptibility testing

This module covers antibiotic susceptibility testing within the laboratory: their significance and makes use of, describes their strategies and functions, and describes intimately the procedures relevant to important strategies.


Week 4

Module D- Interpretation

This module gives sensible perception into the interpretation of antibiotic susceptibility outcomes.

Module E- High quality Assurance

This module is devoted to High quality Administration and High quality Assurance (QA/High quality Management (QC) procedures and makes use of QC strains to make sure the accuracy of susceptibility check outcomes. Antibiotics: significance, components and ideas.

Week 5

Module F- Various to AST- Genome Evaluation Device

As an alternative choice to phenotypic strategies, the researcher might determine to make use of genotype-based strategies to determine genes of curiosity. Within the lectures of this module, we current the Resfinder instrument that can be utilized to seek out resistance mechanisms (genes and in future variations additionally particular level mutations) from entire sequences genome of the micro organism of curiosity. The second lecture was an indication of My DB Finder which can be utilized to determine user-defined genes of curiosity from whole-genome sequence information.
