BBSRC sLoLa grantThe spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a slow-moving pandemic that has been identified by the WHO as one of the top 10 threats facing humanity. Plasmids and other MGEs play a key role in the dissemination of AMR, but we have only a rudimentary understanding of the factors that determine if and how MGEs spread through microbial communities. It is generally assumed that bacterial immune systems are a major determinant, but existing studies are limited to only a few stand-alone ...

Background- Thermophilic organisms are composed of both bacterial and archaeal species. The enzymes isolated from these species and from other extreme habitats are more robust to temperature, organic solvents and proteolysis. They often have unique substrate specificities and originate from novel metabolic pathways. Thermophiles as well as their stable enzymes (‘thermozymes’) are receiving increased attention for biotechnological applications.
The proposed project will establish thermophilic in ...
