Treatments resistance prediction


Antibiotics resistance development is a major health issue because it reducts treatments possibilities in case of infection.

Some resistances are induced by genetic mutations or the acquisition of a gene by a microorganism. The detection of those mutations or those genes allows to predict the antibiotics resistance.

Genoscreen helps you to identify genetic mutations or the genes responsible for resistance to antibiotics: we define the genetic targets to study according to the suspected resistance.
