This course examines bacterium-host relationships and explores virulence factors that promote colonisation and survival of infecting microorganisms and virulence attributes that damage the host. The course explores experimental approaches for investigating bacterium-host interrelationships, cultured cell lines and lab animals and their application in studying microbial pathogenicity. The course also explores challenges facing vaccine development and discovering antibiotics. The molecular pathogenesis of selected pathogens and the importance of normal microbiota and probiotics are discussed
