Combating Antibiotic Resistant Superbugs | Gautam Dantas || Radcliffe Institute

Gautam Dantas presents "Combating Antibiotic Resistant Superbugs across Diverse Habitats," discussing how new genomic and computational technologies are enabling a deeper understanding of how antibiotics affect diverse microbiomes, including the evolution and spread of antibiotic resistance across diverse habitats. These insights enable the design of novel diagnostics and therapeutics for maintaining healthy microbiomes and preventing and treating future infections.
