    • Detecting Vertical Transfer of Antibiotic Resistance Genes in the Absence of Antibiotics 

      Pantoja-Feliciano, I.G.; Alicea Serrano, A.M.; Domínguez Bello, María G. (External Scientific Advisory Committe (ESAC), 2009-11)
      Our hypothesis is that antibiotic resistance can be vertically transmitted between generations, in the absence of antibiotics. Mothers readily colonize their offspring with bacteria that have antibiotic resistance genes. To ...
    • The crop bacterial microbiota in adult hoatzins from different geographical locations 

      Godoy-Vitorino, Filipa; Domínguez Bello, María G. (External Scientific Advisory Committe (ESAC), 2009-11)
      The hoatzin is the only folivorous bird known to have foregut fermentation. Since changes in plant availability must influence the dietary choices and affect the structure of the digestive microbiota in herbivores, we ...
