CRISPR Capture: Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance in Mobile Microbiomes

Patrick Degnan with Rachel Whitaker and Rebecca Stumpf of the University of Illinois in the U.S. will harness the CRISPR bacterial immune system to develop a new technology called in vitro CRISPR-capture. They will use this tool to track the abundance and transmission of antimicrobial resistance elements among connected natural and human ecosystems in East Africa.
