Dr. Agmon’s pioneering paper on antibiotic resistance in E. coli

06-16-2023. Dr. Eran Agmon has published a pioneering paper that explores antibiotic resistance in E. coli by implementing a multiscale whole-cell model. Developed with Dr. Agmon‘s model integration software, Vivarium, the study encompasses single-cell dynamics and population-level heterogeneity to provide a mechanistic understanding of antibiotic resistance, furthering the fight against the rise of multidrug-resistant bacterial strains.
