Linking antimicrobials and antibiotic resistance genes in indoor dust

Previous BioBE postdoc Erica Hartmann (now Assistant Professor at Northwestern University!), along with several BioBE researchers and members of Curtis Huttenhower’s (Harvard) and Rolf Halden’s (Arizona State) research groups, recently published a paper establishing a link between antimicrobials and antibiotic resistance genes in indoor dust.¬†Dr. Hartmann published a post summarizing the main findings at microBEnet. The paper is freely available in the journal¬†Environmental Science & Technology.
