A course of lectures on bacterial causative agents of human infections. The course focuses on general aspects of medical microbiology and selected groups of pathogenic bacteria and is complementary to both the courses of medical virology and parasitology at the Faculty of Science, Charles University, and practically oriented courses of medical microbiology at the Faculties of Medicine.

§ A history of medical microbiology

§ Bacterial taxonomy (bacterial species, phylogenetic classification, taxonomic position and identification of medically important bacteria)

§ Bacterial species populations (population genetics methods, types of bacterial populations, bacterial strain and epidemic clone)

§ Pathogenicity (species pangenome versus individual genome, pathogenicity islands, pathogenicity factors, host-pathogen interaction)

§ Antibacterial drugs (classification of medically important antibiotics and chemotherapeutics, mechanisms of action)

§ Resistance to antimicrobials (resistance mechanisms, genetic factors in the emergence and spread of resistance, resistance islands, metaresistome)

§ Medically important bacteria in immunocompetent and community patients

§ Important opportunistic bacterial pathogens

§ Historical, cultural and social importance of bacterial infections (plague, cholera, tuberculosis, multiresistance)
