Informacion util, excelente instructores. I would like to see a little bit more about how to prevent obesity with microbime

Very informative! Everybody should take this course, to know more about their own microbiome...

The first lessons are not so exciting, but hang in there! The most interesting parts come later ;)

I recommend this course, it was nicely oorganized and very informative!

Excellent fundamentals for a rapidly-expanding and intensively-researched emerging discipline in health and disease. Clear and compelling. Well presented.
