This is the blog of the students enrolled in the course Mechanism of Pathogenicity (MICR 341), offered at the Macdonald Campus of McGill University. The goal of this course is to learn about bacterial infections, including the strategies used by the bacteria to cause infection, and the strategies used by the host to fight the infection. The students in this course are required to post a page on this site. The page provides information about a bacterial pathogen, discusses an outbreak that have occurred recently, or provides information about an ongoing issues dealing with bacterial pathogens.
