Mobile antibiotic resistome in wastewater treatment plants revealed by Nanopore metagenomic sequencing

Abstract Background Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are recognized as hotspots for horizontal gene transfer (HGT) of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs). Despite our understanding of the composition and distribution of ARGs in WWTPs, the genetic location, host, and fate of ARGs remain largely unk...
