CRISPR Antibiotics: Turning Defense Into Offence

CRISPR Antibiotics: Turning Defense Into Offence content piece image

Almost 80% of all antibiotics in the United States are not consumed by humans. In 2010, 57,334 metric tonnes of antibiotics were used in livestock production worldwide to improve animal health and welfare as well as increase animal growth rates and productivity. Thus, efficient and cost-effective antimicrobials are crucial for both animal health and food security. However, the same drug-resistant microbes that protect the efficacy of our antibiotics are contaminating our environment.

  • Inducing bacterial cell death
  • Suppressing the growth of a targeted bacterial species
  • Deleting functional genes from pathogens
