Scientists identify genetic catalysts that speed up evolution of antibiotic resistance
Researchers at Oxford University have shown that it is possible to identify genetic catalysts that accelerate the evolution of antibiotic resistance in bacteria—and that this knowledge could be used to design treatments to stifle the development of resistance. The study was funded by the Wellcome Trust and the European Research Council and is published in the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution.
