Antimicrobial resistance - network on chromosomally-mediated resistance

Overforbruk av antibiotika har ført til at mange bakterier har blitt motstandsdyktige mot denne medisinen. Antimikrobiell resistens (AMR) er en enorm belastning for helsevesenet og samfunnsøkonomien og truer både lokal og global helse. Dette ønsker AMR-CHROM å gjøre noe med. AMR-CHROM har derfor ...
