Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Genomic migration analysis shows antibiotic resistance moving from humans to animals

New results show that human-acquired antibiotic resistance genes are being transmitted to livestock, companion animals and wildlife. Researchers analyzed a global set of 901 genome sequences of the bacteria Streptococcus agalactiae (aka group B Strep) from nine different host species -- humans, cows, dogs, fish, frogs, gray seals, dolphins, goats and a camel -- to better understand the transmission process. Streptococcus agalactiae can cause life-threatening illnesses.
