This dissertation describes the use of various DNA techniques to identify resistance genes in different bacterial pathogens. Unlike conventional methods, such as culture mediums, these DNA techniques are capable of generating more reliable results in less time. This makes it possible to detect multi-resistant bacteria and prevent further infection through the implementation of timely prevention measures. Additionally, these DNA techniques give us instant insight into the type of resistance, which is important from an epidemiological standpoint.
