Antibiotic resistance

Combating drug-resistant superbugs

Antibiotics have been used for the last 80 years to treat patients with bacterial infections. While antibiotics have greatly reduced illness and death resulting from these infections, their use has been so prevalent that microbes have adapted to them, eliminating their effectiveness. These microbes are named antibiotic-resistant superbugs. Superbugs can acquire resistance genes either by… Read article →

Metagenomics and microbial single cell genomics – a winning team

Deciphering the world around us – the “microbial dark matter” (1) – is a remaining challenge in environmental microbiology. Even after decades of 16S rRNA gene-based surveys, there are strong indications that the diversity of bacteria is still not exhaustively described even on high taxonomic (phylum) levels and that 16S rRNA sequences, representing novel bacterial… Read article →
