Dr. Shakibaie MR asking why integron class 1 is important in evolution of microbial resistance to different antibiotics

Every day we hear about report of the new gene cassette associated with class 1 integron. In a research conducted by shakibaie MR and his team he studied prevalence of integrons clss 1, 2 and 3 in a hospitals in Iran. The paper is going to publish in Infect Epidemiol Med. 2016 Summer; Volume 2,

Professor and senior research scientist in microbiology, Department of Microbiology and Virology, Kerman University of Medical Sciences, Kerman, Iran

I earned my Ph.D. from the University of Pune India from 1992 to 1997. His thesis was "Molecular genetics of plasmid-mediated silver and antibiotic resistances in Acinetobacter baumannii”. I completed one year of postdoctoral research training at Aquatic Microbial Lab in Mysore, India in 2006. The title of my Postdoc research was "Horizontal Gene Transfer in Gram-Negative Bacteria". I joined the Department of Microbiology, Kerman University of Medical Sciences in 1998. I published more than 45 original research papers in different International peer-reviewed journals with high impact factors in microbiology and biotechnology. The total impact factor of his research is more than 86, with h-index 13 and i10-index 27. The research gate score index is 27.85. My works also have been cited in 3 textbooks of microbiology published from the USA and Europe. I presented more than 42 papers at International and National Conferences. He has made fundamental contributions in the area of gene transfer, plasmid biology, molecular microbiology, nanotechnology.  I successfully supervised 4 Ph.D. and 1 Post-Doctoral scholar for their research. Currently, 2 Ph.D. students are working with me. Recently, we published a paper in Iran Biomed J 2021 May 1;25(3):193-201. DOI: 10.29252/ibj.25.3.157 entitled Seterochemical Trajectories of PmrA/B Two-component regulatory system in Colistin Resistant Clinical isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii
