Chalmers University of Technology researchers have determined that significant genetic transfer between bacteria in our ecosystems and humans may be linked to pathogenic bacteria in humans developing resistance to antibiotics.
“In recent years, we’ve seen that resistance genes spread to human pathogens to a much greater degree than anyone expected,” said Jan Zrimec, a researcher in systems and synthetic biology at Chalmers University of Technology. “Many of the genes appear to have originated in…
