The study of bacterial genomes is revolutionising clinical microbiology, and the clinical microbiologists of the future will have to process and interpret data very different from that provided by the agar-centric clinical microbiology labs of the 20th century.This laboratory-based training course combines practical hands-on laboratory and bioinformatics work with a set of faculty lectures by leaders in this exciting area. The principal aim is to equip clinical scientists, specialist registrars, and consultants in medical microbiology (including joint medical microbiology and infectious diseases) with sufficient understanding of these areas to meet these challenges in the future.The course will concentrate on techniques that are currently practicable but will also look to the likely application of ‘next generation’ sequencing approaches to clinical microbiology.
