Why has antimicrobial resistance become more important over the last few years? Which is the responsibility of animal production? Is it possible to transfer antimicrobial resistance from animals to humans and vice versa? Can meat contain resistance even without having antimicrobial residues?

What is antimicrobial resistance? Can it be transmitted between different types of bacteria? Can the same bacteria be resistant to several antibiotics? Can resistance genes be ubiquitous? Can antimicrobial resistance be measured?
