Human Microbiome Coursera this Fall with Rob Knight and others

I have to admit I don’t know much about MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) or about Coursera, but the idea does sound pretty intriguing.

A new one is starting this fall called “Gut Check: Exploring your Microbiome” that sounds particularly awesome.  It’s hosted by Rob Knight and others in his lab, with “visiting” lectures from experts around the world.   Seems like a really good way to dive into a deeper understanding of the human microbiome.
