    A Bayesian analysis of the association between Leukotriene A4 Hydrolase genotype and survival in tuberculous meningitis

    Laura Whitworth et al.
    In this ideal example of pharmacogenomics, individuals with a common variant in a gene encoding for an inflammatory lipid mediator benefit selectively from standard-of-care anti-inflammatory treatment used for tuberculous meningitis.

    Metapopulation ecology links antibiotic resistance, consumption, and patient transfers in a network of hospital wards

    Julie Teresa Shapiro et al.
    Patterns of antibiotic use and the connectivity between wards are independently associated with the incidence of antimicrobial-resistant infections in hospital networks.

    Arrayed CRISPRi and quantitative imaging describe the morphotypic landscape of essential mycobacterial genes

    Timothy J de Wet et al.
    A high-throughput functional genomics approach combining inducible CRISPR-interference and quantitative imaging yields an atlas of 'phenoprints' to guide gene function assignments, identify metabolic pathway-specific morphotypes, and inform antibiotic mechanism-of-action studies.

    Droplet-based high-throughput cultivation for accurate screening of antibiotic resistant gut microbes

    William J Watterson et al.
    High-throughput droplet-based cultivation of gut microbes reduces biases of traditional cultivation strategies and thereby enables detection of difficult-to-culture organisms, which is required in applications such as antibiotic screening.

    Antibiotic Resistance: Genomics against gonorrhoea

    Nicholas Medland
    Surveillance strategies based on whole genome sequencing could help with the early identification and detection of new forms of drug-resistant gonorrhoea.

    Predictable properties of fitness landscapes induced by adaptational tradeoffs

    Suman G Das et al.
    Adaptational tradeoffs constrain the evolutionary pathways towards antimicrobial resistance, but highly fit mutants are nevertheless likely to arise at any concentration of the drug.

    ODELAM, rapid sequence-independent detection of drug resistance in isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis

    Thurston Herricks et al.
    Time-lapse live cell imaging of single Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacilli growing into small colonies enables their rapid phenotypic characterization including anti-microbial resistance and heteroresistance in clinical isolates.

    Quantifying antibiotic impact on within-patient dynamics of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase resistance

    Rene Niehus et al.
    A data-driven within-host model reveals that different antibiotics are associated with divergent effects on antibiotic resistance carriage and abundance in hospitalised patients, with important implications for antibiotic stewardship.

    Systematic detection of horizontal gene transfer across genera among multidrug-resistant bacteria in a single hospital

    Daniel R Evans et al.
    Mobile genetic elements were identified and tracked as they exchanged between multidrug-resistant bacteria causing infections at a single hospital.

    Potential impact of outpatient stewardship interventions on antibiotic exposures of common bacterial pathogens

    Christine Tedijanto et al.
    Antibiotic stewardship in the outpatient setting can substantially reduce exposures of potential pathogens to common antibiotics, and complementary efforts are needed to reduce remaining exposures that occur in 'necessary' contexts.
