Antibiotics from the sea

International research team taps potential source of new antibiotics

20-Nov-2019

The team led by Prof. Christian Jogler of Friedrich Schiller University, Jena, has succeeded in cultivating several dozen marine bacteria in the laboratory – bacteria that had previously been paid little attention. The researchers then carried out a functional characterisation of the bacteria, ...

Bacterial Protein Impairs Important Cellular Processes

Researchers have discovered a new function of antibiotic resistant bacteria

19-Nov-2019

Areas of skin that have been damaged by an injury are ideal niches for the concentration of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a bacterium which impairs the healing process in tissue and creates favorable conditions for infections. Because of its resistance to most available antibiotics, this bacterium is ...
