The rise of drug-resistant pathogens urges scientists to develop new ways to understand how these superbugs evade current antibiotic treatments. Sequencing and comparing microbes found in biological and environmental samples allows scientists to study the prevalence and evolution of antibiotic resistance genes. In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist, Gautam Dantas and Amy Pruden will present how they apply sequencing technologies to reveal new bacterial survival mechanisms and what can be done to stop them.
Topics to be covered
Identifying antibiotic-degrading genes in bacteria
Detecting antibiotic resistance evolution in wastewater
