Abstract

Shigellosis is a major cause of diarrheal diseases among children in Andaman & Nicobar Islands, India, which have a population of 350,000 people, including settlers from mainland India and 6 indigenous tribes. From the last one-and-half decade, we have been monitoring the species distri...read more

CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. This feed focuses on the application of CRISPR-Cas system in high-throughput genome-wide screens to identify genes that may confer drug resistance.

Quinolones (ASM)

Quinolones are a class of broad-spectrum antibiotics used against a wide range of bacteria. Examples include lomefloxacin, ofloxacin, and norfloxacin. Discover the latest research on quinolones and their derivatives in this feed.

Antifungals (ASM)

An antifungal, also known as an antimycotic medication, is a pharmaceutical fungicide or fungistatic used to treat and prevent mycosis such as athlete's foot, ringworm, candidiasis, cryptococcal meningitis, and others. Discover the latest research on antifungals here.

Cephalosporins (ASM)

Cephalosporins are a class of beta-lactam antibiotics used for prophylaxis and treatment of infections caused by bacteria susceptible to these antibiotics, including gram-positive bacteria Staphylococcus and Streptococcus. More recent generations of this drug class also exhibits some activity against gram-negative bacteria. Here is the latest research.
