However, their overuse has led to the emergence and spread of resistant bacteria, resulting in an “arms race” whereby ever more potent drugs are becoming a necessity. As antimicrobial resistance represents an ever-growing healthcare challenge worldwide, researchers from the Systems Ecology research group at the Luxembourg Center for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) and the Department of Life Sciences (DLSM) and from the Molecular Disease Mechanisms group at DLSM explored the impact of antibiotic treatment on the microbial community inhabiting the gut of mice.
