Antibiotic-resistant bacteria have evolved a unique chemical mechanism, new discovery reveals

For the first time, scientists have been able to paint a detailed chemical picture of how a particular strain of bacteria has evolved to become resistant to antibiotics. The research is a key step toward designing compounds to prevent infections by recently evolved, drug-resistant "superbugs" th... Read More

New test has a 'nose' for bacteria

U.S. researchers say they have developed a quick, simple method of identifying infectious bacteria by one of their telltale characteristics -- they stink.

Using a low-cast array of printed pigments that react to the distinct odor of many kinds of bacteria, researchers at the University of Ill... Read More
