Labs Could Contaminate Rivers With Antibiotic Resistance Genes
Researchers report that antibiotic resistance genes used in molecular biology and genetic engineering experiments may have reached the environment. In six Chinese rivers, researchers found bacterial DNA carrying these synthetic genes (Environ. Sci. Technol., DOI: 10.1021/es302760s). Still experts call for more studies to confirm the results and pinpoint . . .
