This unit introduces students to the key concepts involved in Biosecurity and Microbial Forensics, with a focus on understanding the types of biological agents that pose potential security risks and the system and practices involved in investigation and management of potential threats. This unit is co-taught with unit Biosecurity and Microbial Forensics G.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Collate, analyse, evaluate, interpret and present information relating to Biosecurity and Microbial Forensics;
2. Identify and analyse potential biosecurity threats and to implement and evaluate appropriate microbial forensic techniques for threat resolution, with independent critical and creative thinking;
3. Respond to potential biosecurity threats with the ability to initiate new ideas, implement effective decisions and cope with uncertainty; and
4. Understand the health, environmental, economic, political, legal and social issues related to biosecurity, with an international perspective.
