Comparative genomics and transcriptional profiles of multi-drug resistant Enterobacteriaceae and Acinetobacters

Comparative genomics and transcriptional profiles of multi-drug resistant Enterobacteriaceae and Acinetobacters

The project aims to better understand antimicrobial resistance mechanisms through genomic and transcriptomic studies. The ultimate goal is to design new molecular and phenotypic tests for rapid and accurate detection of emerging mechanisms of resistance to “old” revisited drugs such as colistin.

 

 

 

 

Next-generation sequencing has the potential to dramatically revolutionize the clinical microbiology laboratory. While this technology evolves, becoming even more accessible, my aim is to better understand the genotype-phenotype correlation of some of the most clinically relevant species within the setting of antimicrobial resistance.
