EASTBIO Investigating the effects of plasmid-borne mutagenic DNA polymerases on the evolution of antibiotic resistance.

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
Antibiotics from the b-lactam family have been a cornerstone of both human and animal medicine but with increasing bacterial resistance to many first and second-line drugs, clinicians are forced to use b-lactams of ‘last resort’, such as carbapenems. Read more

Understanding the multiple antibiotic resistant ESKAPE pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii

  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
The ESKAPE pathogens, which evade most commonly used antibiotics, are a small group of bacteria, identified by the WHO in 2017, as presenting the greatest risk to global human health. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Single-cell measurements of mutation dynamics across bacterial DNA

Genetic mutations are the raw material of evolution, driving evolutionary innovations. Mutation rate is thus a key factor determining how organisms adapt to new environments and whether they survive a severe environmental challenge, such as antibiotic treatment in the case of bacteria. Read more

Understanding and control of electric communication in bacteria colonies, using machine learning

Although initial discussions regarding bioelectricity and its role in the fundamental understanding of various cellular behaviours took place in the 1970s, the bioelectrical view of cells as a more general concept has remained limited to the fringes of biological research for five decades.
