The field of metagenomics and whole community sequencing is a promising area to unravel the content of microbial communities and their relationship to disease and antimicrobial resistance in the human population. Bioinformatic tools are extremely important for making sense out of metagenomics data, by estimating the presence of pathogens and antimicrobial resistance determinants in complex samples. Combined with relevant explanatory data, metagenomics is a powerful tool for surveillance.

TOP REVIEWS FROM METAGENOMICS APPLIED TO SURVEILLANCE OF PATHOGENS AND ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE
The course was well structured however I had little difficulty in doing last assignments I think some session on problem solving should be done before giving assignments.
Good knowledge, and I learned the basic concept of metagenomic
Improved my knowkledge and understanding of Metagenomics use in surveillance and the associated work flow.
I hope it will be improved to include more about meta analysis
