End date
2005
Objective
Identify basic mechanisms and selective pressures involved in evolution & transfer of antibiotic resistance genes in enteric nonpathogens & pathogens particularly in relation to cattle and swine. Analyze, at the molecular level, the pathogenesis, epidemiology, and antibiotic resistance of Salmonella typhimurium DT104 and related pathogens obtained from cattle and swine. Evaluate possible associations between antibiotic resistance and expression virulence determinants in bacterial pathogens.
