Systems biology approach for targeted control of antibiotic-tolerant biofilm sub-populations

A team of researchers from the Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) have used a novel proteomic strategy to elucidate pathogen-related biofilm physiology and develop treatments that directly target antibiotic-tolerant subpopulations, in a bid to alleviate the problem of antibiotic resistance. Their work was recently published in Nature Communications(1).
