About Microbial Active Genetics Lab

The antibiotic resistance crisis is at its global peak around the world, including in India. Understanding the resistance mechanisms of these multidrug resistant bacteria, especially in this region, is fundamental to the comprehension of how resistance evolves across the world. Our goal at the Microbial Active Genetics lab at ASBT is to study the molecular mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in nosocomial gram-negative pathogens, such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Acinetobacter baumannii.
