Magnus Aspenberg will talk at the biomodelling seminar series Wednesday March 28 at 9:15-10. The venue is Konferensrummet at floor 1 in the Ecology building.

Hygiene modulates the effect of antibiotic pressure on competitive release.  In this talk I will present a result together with K. Wollein Waldetoft about a model of how antibiotics resistance increases in a community of people and see how this effect changes with hygiene. The ideas are based on a model developed by S. Hubbell, where he modeled species variety on islands. We present a mathematical model which shows that, under some circumstances, hygiene can attenuate the effect of antibiotics pressure on competitive release. Some data from health care centers in Europe supports this claim partially.

Fika will be served.
