I am in the beginning stages of a capstone project for my master's in Data Science. For various reasons, I have landed on the subject of Clostridium difficile infection. My background is in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistics, but biology is way outside of my wheelhouse. While most of my project will focus on the statistical modelling aspect, I would like to be able to speak intelligently on the subject itself and be able to read through journal articles without getting tripped up on some of the terminology.
I'm not trying to cut corners, but I'm on a tight timeline (about 4 months). What resources - books, references, online courses - would you recommend to bootstrap me into the field of infectious diseases?
