Multidrug resistant bacteria isolated from nosocomial infections at University Teaching Hospital of Point-G, Bamako, Mali

An infection is said to be nosocomial or hospital if it is absent when the patient enters the hospital and it appears and develops at least 48 h late. The objective of this study was to determine the resistance phenotypes of bacteria isolated from nosocomial infections at the University Teaching Hospital of Point G. Urine, blood, pus, skin and bronchoalveolar fluid samples were taken in different units, and bacteria...

Characterizing sweet potato RDR, AGO and DCL genes and potential involvement in defense against virus infections in sweet potato

Characterizing anti-virus genes in sweetpotato is a vital step in mitigating yield loss due to virus infections. This work lays an insight into the structure and expression of key anti-virus genes. Related plant-based anti-virus genes were used as reference to mine key sweetpotato genes from various databases. BLASTN and BLASTP for transcripts was done for evaluation of phylogenetic relationship. Eight genes were...

Prevalence and antimicrobial susceptibility of the borderline oxacillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (BORSA) strains in Bamako, Mali

The borderline oxacillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (BORSA) strains have a low-level resistance to penicillinase-resistant penicillins. The aim of this study was to study the prevalence and the antimicrobial susceptibility of BORSA strains in Bamako. A retrospective study was conducted at the University Teaching Hospital of the Point G in Bamako. The S. aureus strains were isolated on Columbia agar supplemented...
