Institute of Urban Environment Achieved New Progress in the dynamics process of bacterial taxonomy and antibiotic resistance function in urban reservoir
曹所2.JPG
  Antibiotics were regarded as panacea for any microbial infections since discovered. However, with the emerging problem of antibiotic resistance, antibiotic resistant bacteria (ARB) and antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) have been identified as emerging contaminants, posing a serious threat to the health of humans and the environment. Antibiotic resistance is ancient in environment, but with the continuous increase in discharge of antibiotics, heavy metal and pesticide, the development, s...

IUE made an advance on the removal of antibiotic resistance genes during swine manure anaerobic digestion
U020190710361227581972.jpg
  Since antibiotics are commonly used in livestock industry in developing countries, animal waste has become an important reservoir of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs). ARGs receive more public concern because they can transfer among different hosts by horizontal gene transfer (HGT) and pose a risk to human health. Evidences suggest that long-term application of manure and manure-derived fertilizer can increase antibiotic resistance in agricultural soils. These findings highlight the nee...
