Join the new MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) offered by Graz University of Technology “Microbiome and health”

This MOOC will comprise interactive lectures and presentations, experiments and even a game!

Microbiome research represents a novel chapter within microbiology. This MOOC provides an introductory knowledge platform for multiple disciplines such as medicine, agriculture, food science, biotechnology/-economy and informatics. The microbiome’s influence on plant, human and planetary health will be discussed and novel techniques and methods for data analysis will be presented.

The following six chapters will be covered by the MOOC: Introduction, Techniques and Methods, the Plant Microbiome, the Human Microbiome, Resistome and Exposome, Microbiome Research or Planetary Health and SDGs.
After completing the MOOC, you will have acquired advanced knowledge about the microbiome and related topics in the field of plant and human research. You will be aware of state-of-the-art methodologies including bioinformatic data processing. You will know the potential of the microbiome to combat current global issues and the need for preservation strategies to protect microbial diversity and functions. 
Basic biological knowledge is required to participate in the Microbiome and Health MOOC, but the most important thing to bring with you is general interest in this novel research field.
