New preprint: Neisseria resistome
A big congratulations to RIT students Michael Foire and Jordan Raisman on their new preprint (https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.07.30.228593v1)! This work characterizes resistance across the commensal Neisseria, which are known sources of resistance for their pathogenic cousin, Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Using both MIC testing and whole genome sequencing, several resistance-encoding mutations are nominated in non-pathogenic species.
