Description
Multidrug-resistant bacteria are spreading worldwide and present a serious public health issue. Bacterial resistance has to be addressed with a global approach connecting human health with animals and the environment. Mobile genetic elements (MGEs) such as bacterial plasmids, transposons or cassettes of integrons, as frequent carriers of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs), play an important role in the global spread of ARGs among bacterial communities. My research aims to understand how environmental parameters could modulate the dynamics of MGEs involved in ARG dissemination and contribute to the global burden of antibiotic resistance. For this aim, I will use ...
