High-throughput laboratory evolution reveals evolutionary constraints in Escherichia coli

  19 December 2020

Understanding the constraints that shape the evolution of antibiotic resistance is critical for predicting and controlling drug resistance. Despite its importance, however, a systematic investigation of evolutionary constraints is lacking. Here, we perform a high-throughput laboratory evolution of Escherichia coli under the addition of 95 antibacterial chemicals and quantified the transcriptome, resistance, and genomic profiles for the evolved strains.
