About this Research Topic
This Research Topic will focus on acquired antimicrobial resistance mechanisms in animal and zoonotic pathogens. All mechanisms will be considered such as target modification, protection of the target, efflux, decreased permeability, enzymatic inactivation. Emerging mobile elements harboring new resistance genes or resistance islands will be of particular interest for this topic.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
