FEMS Microbiology Ecology Webinar on Environmental Dimension of Antibiotic Resistance
This webinar looks at anthropogenic use of antibiotics in various ecosystems and the implications for human health. Topics of interest include: evolution of antibiotic resistance, fate and effects of antibiotics in various ecosystems, dissemination of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance genes, bacteria with transferable resistances, co-selection, links between the environment and human health, and mitigation strategies.
Join us for a webinar on the Environmental Dimension of Antibiotic Resistance (Thematic Issues to explore: EDAR 2018, EDAR 2020), moderated by the Editor-in-Chief of FEMS Microbiology Ecology, and featuring three researchers primed for a fascinating discussion on the most recent science on this topic:
