Supplementary Information: Antibiotic resistance in Vibrio-like bacteria is common on Cape Cod, MA beaches

Megan K. May & Rebecca J. Gast
Antibiotic resistance (AR) is a natural process, enhanced by anthropogenic antibiotic use. Natural environments, like the ocean, act as reservoirs of resistance; but until recently, little research has examined their dynamics. Six beaches on Cape Cod, MA, with varying human impacts, were sampled over one year on nine occasions.
