Kort beskrivning

INTERACT is expected to provide crucial input to environmental regulatory agencies, as well as the health care, water and shipping sectors.

Specifically, we will assess:
1. What biocides and concentrations that promote resistance development
2. In which environments high-risk mixtures can be found
3. The genetic basis for co- and cross-resistance
4. The potential for resistance factors to spread from the environment to human pathogens
