  • Estuary sediments are chemically contaminated by adjacent coastal industrial cities, but the impact of organic pollutants on antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in estuarine sediments is unknown. We comprehensively analyzed the complex interactions between chemical pollutants (heavy metals and organic pollutants), mobile genetic elements (MGEs), and ARGs in estuarine sediments during various seasons. The results indicate that under the effects of the chemically polluted river water, the number… CONTINUE READING
