Understanding the Transmission of Antibiotic Resistance Between Hospitals and the Environment

The project proposes to monitor AMR at metagenomic level by focusing on unique microbial antibiotic resistance genes (ARG) signatures and tracking the resistance from the "source" to the "sink". The approach intends to provide direct information about AMR and its implications on vulnerable populations. This information is lacking in Indian context and a reliable catalogue would help in proper visualization of the network involved in AMR and to develop strategies to mitigate it
