The selection of a proper antibiotic is crucial for the efficient treatment of bacterial related diseases. A classical laboratory test in order to sort out the most suitable antibiotic to fight an infection is the Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing. This unit, entitled “Antibiotic and antibiotic sensitivity” is intended to give the basics of this technique, which is very often performed by microbiologists, and to raise awareness of the common misuse of antibiotics that is leading us to a generalised antibiotic resistance scenario, and so, a global health problem. Objectives: - To get acquainted with lab ware and techniques of Microbiology. - To incorporate the use of English in professional situations, and to train students’ language skills and practice, so as to enable them to work in another country.

Cultural control of herbicide-resistant Lolium rigidum Gaud. populations in winter cereal in Northeastern Spain Cirujeda Ranzenberger, Alicia; Taberner Palou, Andreu (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria (Espanya), 2009)Lolium rigidum Gaud. is one of the most common weed species in winter cereals in Northeastern Spain. Herbicide resistance has been growing since the mid 90's and exclusive herbicide use is not enough in many cases, so that ...
Development of a SCAR marker and a strain-specific genomic marker for the detection of the biocontrol agent strain CPA-8 Bacillus amyloliquefaciens (formerly B. subtilis) Gotor Vila, Amparo María; Teixidó i Espasa, Neus; Usall i Rodié, Josep; Dashevskaya, Svetlana; Torres Sanchis, Rosario (WileyAssociation of Applied Biologists, 2016)In this work, reliable tools were developed to detect and identify the biocontrol strain CPA-8 using DNA amplification techniques. As a first approach, the RAPD (random amplified polymorphic DNA) technique was applied ...
