(1/n) Excited that final version of work led by @D4N__ studying evolutionary repeatability and collateral sensitivity is out. #mathevo #clecliniccancer nature.com/articles/s4146… @CCLRI @NatureComms @CWRUSOM
(2/n) This collab between @CompSciOxford @CCLRI @CWRUSOM & @MoffittPSOC is an extension of @D4N__ ‘s initial theory paper that proposed ‘steering evolution’ as a method of extending the use of existing drugs to control infection. #AntibioticResistance journals.plos.org/ploscompbiol/a…
(3/n) using the fitness landscape metaphor, we reasoned that instances of collateral sensitivity need not be repeatable, as evolutionary branch points could lead to multiple peaks - which could have different sensitivity profiles.

Antibiotic testing. Let's go.

Tentatively calling this #tweetorial "Antibiotic testing: why and how and huh?"

Important caveat: this is a HUGE topic. I’m mostly going to focus on 1) basic rationale and 2) laboratory methods. And 3) try not to say anything wrong/misleading!
Question #1: Why would a person want to know if bacteria A is resistant to antibiotic B?
And the answer is ...

All are legit answers! But it's very situation dependent and you'd have different reasons for each. Let’s go through them.
