Good Biofilm Course Online

I thought I would share this course as I have found it very useful in the past for training students who come into our lab.

Hello Community!

This is my first post and I wanted to share a course that was introduced this year on Biofilms. It's called "Bacteria and Chronic Infection" and it's on the platform Coursera. It has been produced by Thomas Bjarnsholt from the University of Copenhagen. I've been through the course myself and I thought it was really good. I've also put several students through it to help them to get up to speed with the current knowledge on infections caused by biofilms. I recommend that you give it a try.

Here is the link:

I hope you find this useful. If you know of any good training resources in biofilms or microbiomes it would be great to hear of them through this community.

PS. if you are looking for more experts I think Thomas Bjarnsholt would make a good addition.

I'm a freelance science communicator, formerly a Postdoc in the biofilm field. I'm interested in how bacteria cause disease and look to technology to produce novel tools to study and ultimately prevent infection.
