Identification of novel double-stranded RNA elements in developing antibiotic resistance in the agricultural environment Current Projects

Centre for Sport, Exercise and Life Sciences

The goal of the project is to identify and subsequently characterise the dsRNA dimension of the animal gut microflora (both the differential presence of antisense bound to mRNA and phage dsRNAs containing novel genetic information in response to AB pressure). Identification of novel functional dsRNAs (asRNA bound to its target and phage dsRNAs involved in AR) will mark a paradigm shift in our understanding of the development of AR and future approaches to treating infections.
