Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) poses a significant threat to global public health, rendering many conventional antibiotics ineffective against bacterial infections. Addressing this challenge requires innovative approaches, among which biotechnological tools have emerged as promising solutions. This research paper explores the role of new biotechnological tools in combating AMR. It examines various biotechnological interventions such as CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing, phage therapy, antimicrobial peptides, and synthetic biology in the context of AMR mitigation. The paper discusses their mechanisms of action, potential applications, and current challenges. Additionally, it evaluates the implications of these biotechnological tools in clinical settings, agriculture, and environmental contexts. Through a comprehensive review of the literature, this paper aims to highlight the importance of integrating new biotechnological tools into multidisciplinary strategies to address the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance.
