Environmental and ecological factors play a significant role in antibiotic resistance

In a recent study, published in the journal eLIFE, researchers have screened over 160,000 bacterial genomes to identify the presence […]

Vulnerable genes may combat antibiotic resistance

Target-based antibiotics act on the products of essential genes but rarely result in bacterial death. A new study published in […]

The origins of antibiotic resistance

By comparing thousands of bacterial genomes, researchers have traced back the evolutionary history of antibiotic resistance genes. Antibiotic resistance Antibiotic […]

The State Of: Antimicrobial Resistance

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the most pressing public health threats we will face in our lifetimes. In fact, […]

Dialling down bacterial resistance

‘Dialling down bacterial resistance’ – Written by Charlotte Harrison, Science Writer. A paper published in Science Advances has identified a […]

New form of antimicrobial resistance discovered in Group A Streptococcus

Researchers have identified a new form of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in Group A Streptococcus (GAS). GAS organisms can cause various […]

Genomic signatures of pre-resistance in Tuberculosis

Researchers have conducted the largest population-level genomic analysis of M. tuberculosis to date, with a view to pre-empt the emergence of resistance. […]

Antimicrobial resistance: This is not just a phage

I worked at a pharmacy for over seven years. During that time, thousands of prescriptions for antibiotics came and went. […]

Evolutionary arms race: artificial selection for host resistance to tumour growth

Researchers have used artificial selection to observe the evolutionary arms race between tumour cells and the host immune response. Evolutionary […]

The Big Challenge… With Craig MacLean

With the ever-increasing potential of new technology and the exponential growth of the life sciences field, researchers are always running […]
