seagulls harbor antibiotic resistant bacteria

Gilberto Igrejas in the University of TrĂ¡s-os-Montes and Alto Douro, Portugal, worked to carry out the Research. He stated, “We used a novel method known as proteomics to discover the most amount of bacterial proteins that are regarded as linked in a few, as yet unidentified, method to antibiotic resistance. Our description of those proteins that we found may offer new targets. The seagulls examined (Larus cachinnans) are migratory birds which could be seen across Europe, such as the South East of England. They will eat the food resources offered by humans garbage, and can be marine feeders. It’s believed that they might represent 1 way that antibiotic resistance genes could be dispersed from place to place.
