Sex in the Sink: gene swapping bacteria are making new superbugs (NBC News)

Bacteria appear to be having the microbial equivalent of inter-species sex in hospital sinks, swapping chunks of DNA that render them impervious to antibiotics, researchers reported Wednesday.
The findings may help explain the rise in drug-resistant “superbugs” in hospitals, and they suggest that they may sometimes be breeding on site, as opposed to being carried in by patients.







The team at the National Institutes of Health found carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) that appeared to have exchanged pieces of genetic material called plasmids that gave them resistance to antibiotics. CRE resist most, if not all antibiotics, and they are becoming more common: they are found in about 4 percent of hospitals now and 18 percent of long-term care facilities.

Yep…bacteria will do it anywhere
