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...

Whole-genome sequencing and gene sharing network analysis powered by machine learning identifies antibiotic resistance sharing between animals, humans and environment in livestock farming (2022)
Journal Article

Anthropogenic environments such as those created by intensive farming of livestock, have been proposed to provide ideal selection pressure for the emergence of antimicrobial-resistant Escherichia coli bacteria and antimicrobial resistance genes (ARGs...

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
Baker, M., Hobman, J. L., Dodd, C. E., Ramsden, S. J., & Stekel, D. J. (2016). Mathematical modelling of antimicrobial resistance in agricultural waste highlights importance of gene transfer rate. FEMS Microbiology Ecology, 92(4), Article fiw040. https://doi.org/10.1093/femsec/fiw040

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...
