As far as I can tell, there is no coherent body of information about 
antibiotic resistance available through an easy-to-locate Web site.

I have tried to help out by starting a small, unofficial Web site for 
WHONET, the World Health Organization effort to track the emergence of 
resistant bacteria.

If someone here has a list of online resistance resources, I could store 
them at the WHONET site.
