Modelling the impact of wastewater flows and management practices on antimicrobial resistance in dairy farms (2024)
Journal Article

Dairy slurry is a major source of environmental contamination with antimicrobial resistant genes and bacteria. We developed mathematical models and conducted on-farm research to explore the impact of wastewater flows and management practices on antim...

Towards a general model for predicting minimal metal concentrations co-selecting for antibiotic resistance plasmids (2021)
Journal Article

© 2021 Elsevier Ltd Many antibiotic resistance genes co-occur with resistance genes for transition metals, such as copper, zinc, or mercury. In some environments, a positive correlation between high metal concentration and high abundance of antibioti...

A generalised model for generalised transduction: the importance of co-evolution and stochasticity in phage mediated antimicrobial resistance transfer (2020)
Journal Article

© FEMS 2020. Antimicrobial resistance is a major global challenge. Of particular concern are mobilizable elements that can transfer resistance genes between bacteria, leading to pathogens with new combinations of resistance. To date, mathematical mod...

Mathematical modelling of antimicrobial resistance in agricultural waste highlights importance of gene transfer rate (2016)
Journal Article

Antimicrobial resistance is of global concern. Most antimicrobial use is in agriculture; manures and slurry are especially important because they contain a mix of bacteria, including potential pathogens, antimicrobial resistance genes and antimicrobi...
