This course will review the microbiology, epidemiology and pathogenicity of the most common bacterial zoonotic pathogens in Norway. In addition, the course will introduce the use of modern genetic methods in surveillance, outbreak investigations and research relevant to public health, food safety and veterinary medicine. The course is intended for PhD students in the field of biology, but Master students and Postdoctoral fellows are welcome as well.
Preparatory work: Course participants are expected to bring and present an A2 (420mm x 594mm) poster describing their current research project and the reason for choosing this course.
Maximum numer of participants: 14
