Bacterial biofilms, begone

By some estimates, bacterial strains resistant to antibiotics – so-called superbugs – will cause more deaths than cancer by 2050. Colorado State University biomedical and chemistry researchers are using creative tactics to subvert these superbugs and their mechanisms of invasion. In particular, they’re devising new ways to keep harmful bacteria from forming sticky matrices called biofilms […]
