Bacteria with antibiotic resistant genes discovered in Antarctica, scientists say

Summary by Ground News
Bacteria in Antarctica have been discovered with genes that give them natural antibiotic and antimicrobial resistance. Scientists from the University of Chile collected several samples from the Antarctic Peninsula from 2017 to 2019. "Superpowers" which evolved to resist extreme conditions are contained in mobile DNA fragments that can easily be transferred to other bacteria.
