About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 24 January 2023

Antibiotic resistance is a growing global concern due to the emergence of pathogens with multi-drug resistance (MDR) including clinically important antibiotics. MDR strains are a major risk to public health because of the potential for treatment failures particularly for zoonotic pathogens (pathogens that can be transmitted from animals to humans). Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) is a comprehensive method for analysing entire genomes. Analysis of WGS can give genomic information to characterize strains, detect presence or absence of resistance genes, plasmids, integrons, and to observe the phylogenetic relationship among a population.

Through the analysis of WGS we can observe the genetic diversity, evolution, and emergence of new clones in a specific population. The findings of this Research Topic will contribute to the knowledge of zoonotic bacterial pathogens with relevant importance public health.

We are interested in manuscripts describing zoonotic bacterial pathogens and important findings related to antimicrobial resistance and genotypic features through the analysis of WGS.

Keywords: Genomics, Pathogens, Whole Genome Sequencing, Antimicrobial Resistance, Phylogenetics


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.
