The outline of my research is focused on the metabolism and drug resistance of gram-negative bacteria particularly Acinetobacter baumanii, and the mechanism mediated resistance, the structure of cell wall and proteomic study involved in resistance, the composition of LPS and factors affect the growth and biofilm formation of this bacterium. The newly research will be focused on the gram- positive bacteria in terms of metabolism and antimicrobial drug resistance. CRISPR technique is another side of my subject.
Up to date, my research is focused on the presence and occurrence of antibiotics in different water bodies, and the fate of antibiotics in water, and related multidrug resistance bacteria that have the ability to degrade and/ or adsorb antibiotic residuals. In addition, we also involved modern techniques (eDNA, NGS, and metagenomic) in our scope and aims.
