The course will cover the topics related to antimicrobial resistance with basic definitions and overview on antimicrobials their use and the emergence and spread of resistance. The course will guide you through the concepts and the importance of resistance spread and dissemination and how that happens. It will show you how bacteria become resistant and which mechanisms they might use for this. And as part of the course you will also receive some training in methods for antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) and detection of specific resistance in the microbiological laboratories with the basic methods available and with focus on the obtention of good quality results which can be interpreted and used for different purposes. Additionally, it will show you how to use genomic analysis tools to analyze whole genome sequencing data to detect resistance genes (and or other genes of interest) in a simple and easy way using online tools freely available. In the new new version an additional module including detection of specific resistance mechanisms was added. After this course you should be able to: 1. Describe the most important families of antimicrobials and mode of action 2. Understand the basic concepts of antimicrobial resistance from several perspectives (clinical, research and microbiological) 3. Enumerate and describe how bacteria can become resistant and the mechanisms that may be involved in that process 4. Describe how antimicrobial resistance emerges and spreads around the world including concepts of antimicrobial resistance transfer, selection and dissemination 5. Enumerate the methods used for antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) 6. Compare dilution and diffusion methods and know the basic techniques of agar disk diffusion, broth dilution and agar dilution methods 7. Have detailed theoretical knowledge on how to perform the main methods in a laboratory 8. Know the basic concepts about analysis and interpretation of results of AST, including different breakpoints, cut-off setting and their applications. 9. Understand the importance and related concepts related to quality management and quality assurance method standardization, applied to AST 10. Relate the information obtained in this course with real cases of resistant bacteria spreading in patients, the community, animals or the environment 11. Relate the phenotypical results with results from genotyping using molecular techniques for detection of resistance mechanisms 12. Understand the concept and be able to apply genomic analysis tools used to detect resistance genes and other relevant genes from Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) data (with demonstration of selected online tools) Disclaimer: Please note that the guidelines and methods referred or links included in these materials are updated when the videos lectures are produced and before the course is released, however these might become outdated with time....



As a microbiology student, I can say that I've learned so many theoretical and practical methods involving antimicrobial resistance as well as bacteriology in general. Huge thanks to great lecturers!


It was really a good lectures and please I want to know about my certificate in have already purchased this course and submitted all\n\nThe documents let me know when will I get my certificate .

I really enjoyed the course, being a complete novice i found it challenging to understand some of the technical terms but learnt alot.

創建者 DIVY S


I gained some valuable information regarding AMR and came to know about various resistances.

Thus it was great learning with you guys

This course was very much helps me to understand all the resistance pathways of bacteria and identification tools.

創建者 Devika P


Thank you so much coursera for the lectures and to my tutor. I was able to understand the concepts of these course clearly.

Good overview of microbiology techniques - at times overly technical for my level but generally really well presented.

創建者 doaa r a


the course was very good and i intersted too much while studying and earn alot of new information thank you

Overall, the course contents is useful. If course slides can be provided, that'll be extra helpful.

創建者 Mohamed S T


Very important course that help to know several ways of anti microbial susceptibility testing.



There's so much to learn , very interesting and a bit complicated but it's so much worth it !

Found the lecture content appropriate but sometimes hard to understand some of the lecturer

創建者 Jaswandi


Excellent course, very nice instructors. Explained each and everything with utmost details.

創建者 Jewellia T


Very educational course, however the lectures are very lull and do not hold attention well.

創建者 Abel P G


Really great, a little more specificity on the subjects (More time) would be even better.

創建者 Raksha B


Enjoyed learning the resistance mechanism of antibiotics and the process of testing them

創建者 hodan


This class was very much eye-opening as I have gained knowledge and experience

創建者 Markus P


A good overview on antimicrobial resistance and how it is measured in the lab.

創建者 Damu S


Good course. Few of the content seems repeated on different lectures.
