Intro

Open2Study: Microbiology and Forensic Science

 with  Dr Sereen M.B Bataineh

Have you ever thought about infectious diseases and why we get infected? What is the causative agent? In this course you will be touring through four modules, starting by taking a close look at the bacterial cell structure and functions which will then lead you to the study of viruses.

You will go through the differences in the different types of cells which will allow you to distinguish the two major groups of bacteria and techniques. Next, you will focus on Forensic Microbiology, its history and how this discipline has evolved. Finally, we will look at the latest molecular techniques used for detecting microbes’ genetic material.

What will I learn?
  • Bacterial cell structure and function
  • Viruses and their structure
  • How Forensic Microbiology has evolved
  • Different types of Forensic Microbiology
  • Differences in Forensic Science versus Forensic Microbiology
  • How to read a scientific journal and review one in a case study
  • Genotyping techniques
  • The role of DNA and RNA in Microbiology and Forensic Science
Where could this lead me?

If you're wondering what your future could look like in this area, here are some potential careers you could head towards.

  • Molecular Laboratory Technician
  • Forensic Scientist
  • Forensic Studies
  • Teacher of Microbiology
  • Teacher of Forensic Scientist
