The primary task of the research group Microbial Genomics and Antimicrobial Resistance at the Technical University of Denmark is to conduct targeted research with the aim of predicting and preventing infectious diseases in humans and support global detection and control.
The research is concentrated on evolution, epidemiology, development, spread and persistence of infectious agents, with a special focus on antimicrobial resistance.
We conducts studies on the spread of bacteria and resistance genes globally within and between the animal and human population and eluciates the molecular mechanisms of the global epidemiology and infectious process.
The research gropu also determine the occurrence and evolution of resistance genes and decelop methods and strategies for prevention of diseases.
The group is reference laboratory for both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the European Union. And is a part of the Center for Genomic Epedimiology.
The research group provides education on three courses:
General Medical Microbiology
Antimicrobial resistance and typing of bacteria
Fighting bacterial Infections
