Physicists pinpoint a simple mechanism that makes bacteria resistant to antibiotics – Science Daily

Physicists at McMaster University have for the first time identified a simple mechanism used by potentially deadly bacteria to fend off antibiotics, a discovery which is providing new insights into how germs adapt and behave at a level of detail never seen before. The findings, published today in the journal Nature Communications Biology, could have implications in the global battle against antibiotic resistance, enabling the design of better, more effective drugs to fight infection. “There are many, many bacteria out there, and so many antibiotics, but by proposing a basic model that applies to many of them, we can have ...
