(NANO)MICROPLASTICS PROMOTE THE PROPAGATION OF ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE GENES IN LANDFILL LEACHATE

Redazione
(AGENPARL) – LONDON (UNITED KINGDOM), gio 17 settembre 2020 Municipal landfill leachate is a huge reservoir of (nano)microplastics (N/MPs) and antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs). N/MPs have a proven ability to affect the growth of bacteria and compositions of the bacterial community, which may further influence the spread of ARGs in......
