Summary
The World Health Organization claims that 10 million people around the world die each year because antibiotics don’t work anymore. It’s a growing problem and it’s all because of a germ’s genes.
Since their discovery in the last century, anti-microbial agents have substantially reduced the threat posed by infectious diseases. Over the years, these medicines have saved the lives and eased the sufferings of millions of people. But these gains are now threatened by the advent of anti-biotic resistant microbes. These bacteria owe their drug insensitivity to resistance genes, typically on little rings of DNA called plasmits. When one bacterium develops such a gene, it is passed on to all its descendants. Two strains of drug-resistant Staph have spread around the world. University genetics labs are trying to find out how to fight them.
