Multicopy plasmids potentiate the evolution of antibiotic resistance in bacteria

As well as allowing horizontal gene transfer, the increased copy number of plasmids could accelerate evolution. Here, it is shown that… More.

    FWIW, the journal is called Nature Ecology & Evolution. Ecology & Evolution is a Wiley journal.

    We’re used to it in academia – I’m a senior editor of a journal called Methods in Ecology and Evolution. We’re MEE. Ecology & Evolution is E&E, and I guess the new journal will become known as NEE.

    Ecology and what?
    What evolution?
    Micro-evo (a.k.a. built-in adaptation mechanisms)?
    Or the big bluff called macro-evo?
    🙂
    Anyway, whatever. Who cares?
    Serious Science continues researching the mystery at the core of biology, making fascinating discoveries that shed more light on the elaborate cellular and molecular choreographies orchestrated within the biological systems.
    That’s why some of us look forward with increasing anticipation to read future research papers that unveil more details of the wonderful functional specified complex information observed in biology.
