Data analysis

Data will be analysed for associations between resistance patterns and meta-information. Specifically, the following topics are addressed:

  • Microbial resistance patterns; results of the metagenomic analysis.
  • Association of antimicrobial resistance in farm animals with management, biosecurity, antibiotic usage, and animal health and welfare
  • Association of resistance in humans (farm workers, slaughterhouse workers) and the environment with farm / slaughterhouse parameters, including resistance levels in farm animals
  • Description and quantification of different transmission routes of antibiotic resistance from animals to humans.
  • Options to reduce antimicrobial resistance – intervention studies
  • Economic and animal health impact of options for reduction of antimicrobial resistance.
  • Economic optimization of surveillance of antibiotic resistance
