Scientists discover bacteria with antibiotic resistant genes in Antarctica

Researchers from the University of Chile have discovered bacteria with genes that give them natural antibiotic and antimicrobial resistance, which have the potential to spread out of the polar regions. These 'superpowers', which evolved to resist extreme conditions, are contained in mobile DNA fragments that can easily be transferred to other bacteria.
