Comparative Genomics of Listeria Species
Listeria monocytogenes is a food-borne pathogen with a high mortality rate that has also emerged as a paradigm for intracellular parasitism. We present and compare the genome sequences of L.Expand

High frequency of hypermutable Pseudomonas aeruginosa in cystic fibrosis lung infection.
The lungs of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients are chronically infected for years by one or a few lineages of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. These bacterial populations adapt to the highly compartmentalized andExpand

Antibiotics and antibiotic resistance in water environments.
Antibiotic-resistant organisms enter into water environments from human and animal sources. These bacteria are able to spread their genes into water-indigenous microbes, which also contain resistanceExpand

Increasing prevalence of ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae in Europe.
Extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) have been increasingly reported in Europe since their first description in 1983. During the 1990s, they were described mainly as members of the TEM- andExpand

Global Spread of Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium from Distinct Nosocomial Genetic Complex
Vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) have caused hospital outbreaks worldwide, and the vancomycin-resistance gene (vanA) has crossed genus boundaries to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.Expand

Prevalence and spread of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in Europe.
Extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) represent a major threat among resistant bacterial isolates. The first types described were derivatives of the TEM-1, TEM-2 and SHV-1 enzymes during theExpand

Antibiotic Resistance in CampylobacterStrains Isolated from Animals, Foods, and Humans in Spain in 1997–1998
ABSTRACT Colonization by Campylobacter strains was investigated in human, broiler, and pig fecal samples from 1997- 1998, as well as in foods of animal origin, and antibiotic susceptibility testingExpand

Tackling antibiotic resistance: the environmental framework
Antibiotic resistance is a threat to human and animal health worldwide, and key measures are required to reduce the risks posed by antibiotic resistance genes that occur in the environment. TheseExpand

Antibiotics as intermicrobial signaling agents instead of weapons
It has been widely assumed that the ecological function of antibiotics in nature is fighting against competitors. This made them a good example of the Darwinian struggle-for-life in the microbialExpand
