The course 'Antimicrobial resistance - theory and methods' prepared by the Technical University of Denmark, National Food Institute, is available as a massive open online course (MOOC) with on-demand features for anyone that wishes to know more about the basics of antimicrobial resistance.
In 16 short video-lectures, the course covers topics such as basic definitions and overview of antimicrobials and antimicrobial effects, antimicrobial mechanisms, selection and dissemination of antimicrobial resistance as well as module on antimicrobial susceptibility testing methods. Moreover, it includes the use of genomic tools for analysis of Whole Genome Sequencing data for detection of resistance genes (and other genes of interest).

Also, an online course on 'Whole Genome Sequencing tools and applications in surveillance of pathogens' is available for access as a MOOC.
The course includes video lectures about bacterial subtyping and applications of next generation technology to perform research and monitoring, and also demonstrations and guided exercises on the use of online tools.
The lectures provide a background for WGS analyses and present the Center for Genomic Epidemiology (CGE) tools which are available online and can be used widely and by non-bioinformaticians.
