Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy

A study from researchers at the University of Georgia, published in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, showed that 60 percent of cattle fecal samples contained multiple strains of salmonella that traditional testing methods missed. It also found that about one out of every 10 samples tested positive for Salmonella Reading, a drug-resistant serotype of Salmonella. 

The study highlights the importance of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) surveillance in diverse bacteria populations.

Technology developed by UGA researcher Nikki Shariat, an assistant professor of population health in the College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015, CRISPR-SeroSeq, enables researchers to analyze all the types of salmonella
