Cultivation and molecular-based approaches were used to study microbial diversity in two Chilean marine sediments contaminated with high (835 ppm) and very high concentrations of copper (1,533 ppm). The diversity of cultivable bacteria resistant to copper was studied at oxic and anoxic conditions, focusing on sulfate-, thiosulfate-, and iron-reducing(More)
Aquatic environments could play a role in the spread of antibiotic resistance genes by enabling antibiotic-resistant bacteria transferred through wastewater inputs to connect with autochthonous bacteria. Consequently, drinking water could be a potential pathway to humans and animals for antibiotic resistance genes. The aim of this study was to investigate(More)
AIMS To better understand the involvement of faecal contamination in the dissemination of antibiotic resistance genes, we investigated the genetic supports of resistances in nine multi-resistant Escherichia coli strains originating from human faecal contamination, and isolated from three different aquatic environments used for producing drinking water.
