Special Issue "Microbial Drug Resistance Genes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2020).
This Special Issue on "Microbial Drug Resistance Genes" encompasses all fields linked to pathogens' genes, genotypes and elements facilitating resistance to drugs, antibiotics and antimicrobial agents, including viral, protozoal, bacterial, fungal and algal pathogens. Particular consideration will be given to transdisciplinary research synthesizing molecular, cellular, microbiological, computational and epidemiological approaches to pathogen drug resistance. Studies assessing interactions among multi- and pan-drug resistance phenotypes and their genetic basis are encouraged, along with those examining the genomic and evolutionary context of mobilized, amplified or rearranged drug resistance genes. Lastly, papers bridging molecular diagnostics and surveillance of genetic elements associated with drug resistance would be appreciated.
