Antibiotic resistance or pesticide resistance

Antibiotic resistance or pesticide resistance
Describe the background for your choice of resistance. Include details about the disease or pest and the established control strategies. How have we used antibiotics (to treat a particular disease), or pesticides (to protect from a pest); and how has this changed?

Explain how the resistant trait evolved based on principles of natural selection and evolution of a trait at the population level.

For your specific example, what are the consequences of resistance in terms of human health or crop loss / damage?

What steps can be taken to prevent or slow down the evolution of antibiotic or pesticide resistance? Do you think we will succeed in doing so? Why or why not?
