Genetic and Biochemical Studies of Antibiotic Activity and Resistance

A section of Antibiotics (ISSN 2079-6382).

Section Information

An in-depth understanding of pathogenic microorganisms with respect to both genetics and biochemistry is important for the future treatment of infections. In this section, we welcome:

  • Studies that use either genetics or biochemical assays to screen for novel antimicrobials
  • Studies on host–pathogen interaction
  • Studies on the horizontal spread of resistance
  • Genomic studies aimed at identifying resistance and/or virulence genes
  • Genomic-based epidemiological studies

We expect that these studies will contribute to the present or future treatment of infections or assist in intervening with the horizontal spread of resistance and/or virulence genes.
