This course will cover the topic of Whole genome sequencing (WGS) of bacterial genomes which is becoming more and more relevant for the medical sector. WGS technology and applications are high on international political agenda, as the classical methods are being replaced by WGS technology and therefore bioinformatic tools are extremely important for allowing the people working in this sector to be able to analyze the data and obtain results that can be interpreted and used for different purposes. The course will give the learners a basis to understand and be acquainted with WGS applications in surveillance of bacteria including species identification, typing and characterization of antimicrobial resistance and virulence traits as well as plasmid characterization. It will also give the opportunity to learners to learn about online tools and what they can be used for through demonstrations on how to use some of these tools and exercises to be solved by learners with use of freely available WGS analysis tools .

This course was very informative and videos were very engaging. As a soil microbiologist this course provides you an introduction to tools which are being used in epidemiology.
Now I have a background on whole genome sequencing, which means how I know to solve data from WGS. Thanks to DTU's course for giving me NGS knowledge in a simply way.
Thank you very much coursera and all educators who helped me learn this WGS. This course is just awesome. It really helps me pursue my career. Once again thanks alot to DTU TEAM.
The instructors are very efficient and helped me learn with full understanding and made me proficient to use the tools and databases. Thank you very much ;)
