During the last decade, colistin has been catagorized as one of the last resort agents to treat multidrugresistant bacteria. Contrary to its application in humans, colistin has been a widely used antibiotic in animal production. The discovery of the first mobilizable colistin resistance gene (mcr-1) greatly concerns the scientific community, especially with regards to animal production. Here we present the preliminary results of the EFFORT project pertaining to the prevalence of mcr-1 through-out animal production
