Exploring the relationships between antimicrobial use and resistance in Canadian turkey flocks

In a study published in Frontiers in Microbiology, researchers have modelled how antimicrobial use impacts the emergence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in Escherichia coli isolated from Canadian turkey flocks. The findings will help inform antimicrobial stewardship in the turkey sector. Csaba Varga, assistant professor of epidemiology at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and his research group […]

PIG-PARADIGM project aims to reduce the need for antibiotics

Researchers from universities in Denmark, the United States and the Netherlands are collaborating on a project to improve intestinal resilience in developing piglets, with the aim of advancing knowledge on how to prevent bacterial infections and reducing the need for antimicrobials. The 5-year project, called Preventing Infection in the Gut of developing Piglets – and […]

Antimicrobial Resistance – Genomes, Big Data and Emerging Technologies (Virtual Conference)

Third Wellcome Connecting Science meeting on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR). This year’s programme will include antimicrobial discovery and global trends in AMR, in addition to the focus on genomic evidence and the other tools for surveillance. It will highlight the recent advances in the rapidly emerging field of machine learning and GWAS methods to predict AMR. […]
