Plasmid dissemination via horizontal transfer facilitates the spread of antibiotic resistance, a critical problem worldwide. When plasmids are acquired by new bacterial hosts they need to be maintained to continue propagating their resistance genes, both horizontally and vertically. However, the mechanisms involved in plasmid adaptation are not completely understood
