Network-based visualization of ARG-microbe associations in ResistoXplorer

Network-based visualization of ARG-microbe associations in ResistoXplorer

In this video, you will learn how to intuitively explore, manipulate and customize the ARG-microbial host association networks in ResistoXplorer. We recommend you follow along on your own computer and try to answer some of the questions below in the exercise section.

Hands-on Exercise:

Go to the home page of ResistoXplorer and click on the “ARG List” module. Try exploring the ARG-microbial hosts hosts’ associations with your own list of genes or example dataset. Then, based on it, answer or discuss the following points:

  • What important biological insights can you gain from such network-based exploration of ARG-host associations?
  • What is its relevance in the context of antimicrobial resistance?
  • What do you think are the limitations of such an approach?
