Abstract

The excessive use of antibiotics has contributed to emergence of antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria.The environment and ecological habitats facilitate the transfer of the antibiotic resistance genes. To understand the pathogen ecology, it is now important to study antibiotic resistance in non-clinical natural habitats.

Keywords: Antibiotic resistance genes; Horizontal gene transfer; Ecosystem
