About This Topic

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR or AR) is the ability of a microbe to resist the effects of medication that once could successfully treat the microbe. Antibiotic resistance is a subset of antimicrobial resistance. This more specified resistance is linked to pathogenic bacteria. Resistance linked microbiologically is the most common and occurs from genes, mutated or inherited, that allow the bacteria to resist the mechanism associated with certain antibiotics. Clinical resistance is shown through the failure of many therapeutic techniques where the bacteria that are normally susceptible to a treatment become resistant after surviving the outcome of the treatment. In both cases of acquired resistance, the bacteria can pass the genetic catalyst for resistance through conjugation, transduction, or transformation. This allows the resistance to spread across the same pathogen or even similar bacterial pathogens.

In this special issue we invite you to submit the latest research progress about antibiotic resistance genes topic. Original research papers, reviews, editorial, short communications, case reports and perspectives are all welcome for submission.
