Antimicrobial resistance: genes, genomes and emerging technologies

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has developed into a silent pandemic ever expanding in the background, disrupting lives and responsible for multiple deaths across the globe. As more of the research community joins in the fight against antimicrobial resistance to combat this ever-present threat to society, it has become clear that combining forces across disciplines is the way forward. A large part of the effort in combating AMR still comes from studying its genes and genomes, gathering surveillance and understanding cellular mechanisms to target. In recognition of this important, and growing area of research BMC Microbiology together with BMC Genomics welcome submissions to this cross-journal collection on antimicrobial Resistance – Genes, genomes, and emerging technologies.
