The Leibniz Research Alliance INFECTIONS, launched in June 2015, combines the expertise of 18 Leibniz institutes and 3 external partner organisations. In the current phase of work, the focus is on the spread of antibiotic-resistant microbes in an increasingly urbanised world. Hans-Peter Grossart from IGB and Alex Greenwood from the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW) investigate the antibiotic resistances and species compositions of microorganisms in the freshwater ecosystems in and around Berlin; and along the gradient from urban to rural.
