The essential genes are those that are required for the bacteria to live and the accessory genes allow it to do something elseContinue reading “Merging two concepts: finding genes that are both essential and core”

Antibiotic delivery to the site of infection

Repurposing of antibiotics and thinking about them in new ways in which we can use them to fight infections are important points for discussion. Understanding bacterial genetics and genomics gives us insights into biofilms and antimicrobial susceptibilities that can drive ongoing and future research.
