Antimicrobial Resistance: A Microscopic Battle Goes Global
Infographic Jul 30, 2018 | by Ruairi J Mackenzie, Science Writer for Technology Networks
Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) has long been a concern for microbiologists. The appearance of antibiotic-proof bacteria and powerful viral strains has dragged AMR into the public’s eye, alongside alarming predictions of its potential impact across all of mankind.
In this infographic, we delve into the origins of AMR, and look at what we can do to help combat it.

- What we can all do to slow down AMR and avert a potential global crisis
The availability of technologies for the generation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from somatic cells has allowed researchers to generate limitless pools of iPSCs retaining the genetic makeup of the somatic cells from which they were derived. Together, iPSCs and CRISPR-Cas9 systems provide researchers with effective in vitro tools for assessing gene function, disease modeling, and regenerative therapy.READ MORE
