Dr. Weissman is responsible for the molecular analysis of clinical bacterial isolates collected from the four study sites, including multiple locus sequence typing, PCR-based virulence factor typing, PCR-based plasmid-based replicon typing, sequencing of antibiotic resistance determinants, and molecular characterization of genetic scaffold of resistance determinants. He will provide analysis of the data using evolutionary and statistical methods and will be responsible for contributing to manuscript preparation and presentation of findings at national meetings. This R01 funding supports the remaining 4 years of a study whose first year was funded by ARRA as an R56.
