Exploratory Metagenomic Analysis of Antibiotic Resistance Genes in Bacterial Communities A statistical approach for classification of the bacterial resitome

Abstract

The increasing prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria has become a notorious threat to human health. Bacteria become resistant through resistance genes that can move between cells using horizontal gene transfer. Antibiotics are naturally produced by microorganisms in the environment and therefore bacterial communities maintain a large collection of… (More)
