A doctoral thesis in the Faculty of Science examines the diagnosis of antibiotic resistance genes in two types of bacteria

A doctoral thesis in the Department of Biology, Faculty of Science,
investigated the molecular detection of the mineral beta-lactamase genes
in two types of bacteria, Stenotrphomonas and Pseudomonas aeruginosa,
which are resistant to multiple antibiotics, isolated from different
infections.

The thesis submitted by the student, Enas Jalil Baqer, included isolating
and diagnosing the bacterium Stenotrphomonas and Pseudomonas from
different clinical samples including wounds, burns and urinary tract
infection, and examining its resistance to antibiotics to identify its
resistance pattern.
The results of the thesis found that both types of bacteria carried the
encoded mineral beta-lactamase genes, so they showed a high resistance
to most of the antibiotics used in the study.
