Objective 1. Investigate potential occurrences of antibiotic resistance and tolerance to hurdles with bacteriophages.
We will study the potential persistence and antibiotic resistance of laboratory and environmental bacterial isolates after repeated exposure to hurdles in combination with bacteriophages. Resistant isolates will be characterized to determine if genetic or enviromental determinants drive bacteriophage resistance.
