This project will use next-generation sequencing, bioinformatics and molecular biology methods to analyse complex plasmids that carry antibiotic resistance genes between cells. The aim is to understand why some resistance genes and plasmids are much more successful than others, potentially leading to improved strategies to help control the spread of resistance.
