    Johansen, Stine Dolores Arctander; Hansen, Ragnhild Tanberg; Ressheim, Tina-Beate Grønning (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-05-19)
    Dental infections are getting more difficult to treat because of the increasing amount of antibiotic resistant oral bacteria. A bacterium can acquire resistance by horizontal gene transfer, this allows a bacterial population to acquire antibiotic resistance genes at a great rate. Occasionally, newly acquired resistance can reduce bacterial fitness. However, bacteria can evolve quickly to compensate ...
