Trying to stay ahead of antibiotic-resistance among superbugs, researchers at MIT and Harvard have developed a new technology that targets bacteria.
Antibiotic resistance is a phenomenon that's sweeping the globe, worrying scientists that a "post-antibiotic era" is in our future. Now, the World Health Organization (WHO) has revealed its plan to combat such an outcome using DNA.
As scientists across the nation worry over the issue of antibiotic resistance, which seems to have us utterly surrounded, new research has revealed that infant antibiotic use is linked to various diseases later in adulthood.
Scientists have discovered antibiotic resistance genes in the bacterial flora of a remote South American tribe, which curiously had never before been exposed to antibiotic drugs, possibly shedding light on a phenomenon that has developed countries utterly surrounded.
So let's talk about toxins... and fish. They normally don't go together. In fact, most living things would prefer to avoid living near toxins. However, at times they can be very helpful, as shown in a recent strategy to help protect the beautiful rainbow trout against Coldwater Disease.
We're not the only creatures on this planet that find the need to craft the occasional antibiotic.
