Brief description Infections due to antimicrobial resistant organisms are a major public health issue. Acinetobacter baumannii is a bacterium that is increasingly being identified as a significant cause of serious antibiotic resistant infections, especially in the intensive care unit setting. Molecular studies in Acinetobacter to identify and characterise drug resistance proteins that pump antibiotics out of the cell will help understand the resistance capabilities and potential of this bacterium.
