Abstract

The development of multidrug resistance is a major problem in the treatment of pathogenic microorganisms by distinct antimicrobial agents. Characterizing the genetic variation among plasmids from different bacterial species or strains is a key step towards understanding the mechanism of...read more

Carbapenems

Carbapenems are members of the beta lactam class of antibiotics and are used for the treatment of severe or high-risk bacterial infections. Discover the latest research on carbapenems here.

Antifungals

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.

Microbial Ecology, Genetics, and Evolution (ASM)

Microbes may exist in a unicellular or colony form. Here is the latest research on their genetic makeup, their relationship with one another and the environment, and their evolution.

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.

Penicillins (ASM)

Penicillin is a group of antibiotics that can be administered intravenously or intramuscularly to treat bacterial infections caused by staphylococci and streptococci. While they are still widely used today, many bacteria have developed resistance to penicillin. Here is the latest research on penicillins.

Aminoglycosides

Aminoglycoside is a medicinal and bacteriologic category of traditional Gram-negative antibacterial medications that inhibit protein synthesis and contain as a portion of the molecule an amino-modified glycoside. Discover the latest research on aminoglycoside here.

Multi-drug Resistance

Multi-drug resistance or multiresistance is antimicrobial resistance shown by a species of microorganism to multiple antimicrobial drugs. Discover the latest research on multi-drug resistance here.

Tetracyclines

Tetracycline is an oral antibiotic used to treat a number of infections including cholera, plague, malaria, and syphilis. It is also the first line of treatment for several diseases including Rickettsia and Lyme disease. Here is the latest research.

Transposons for Gene Editing

Transposons can replicate and spread through the host’s genome and therefore be used as a genetic tool for analysis of gene function. Discover the latest research on the use of transposons for gene editing here.

Sulfonamides

Sulfonamide is a functional group found as the base of several classes of drugs. Sulfonamides can act as synthetic antimicrobial agents, anti-diabetics, diuretics, anticonvulsants, etc. Here is the latest research.

Carbapenems (ASM)

Carbapenems are members of the beta lactam class of antibiotics and are used for the treatment of severe or high-risk bacterial infections. Discover the latest research on carbapenems here.

Antimicrobial Resistance (ASM)

Antimicrobial resistance poses a significant threat to the continued successful use of antimicrobial agents for the treatment of bacterial infections.

Horizontal Gene Transfer

Horizontal gene transfer is a mechanism in which genetic material is transmitted from one organism to another organism. This process is used by bacteria to acquire antibiotic resistance genes and is important for bacterial evolution. Discover the latest research on horizontal gene transfer 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.

Penicillins
