How do antibiotics interact with pathogens overtime, and how does this create an evolutionary advantage for these pathogens? Using this information, how can we develop new ways of treatment?

Started Mar. 5, 2022

Abstract or project description

Living in a world filled with bacteria is an amazing thing. Without microbes, society as we know it just wouldn't function. Unfortunately some bacteria and viruses are pathogenic, and need hosts to survive, leaving said hosts in a wreck. Lucky for patients, antibiotics are an effective way to eliminate these pathogens. Having said that, these bacteria and viruses are becoming resistant to these treatments, and are evolving into super bugs that pose more of a threat in a field where treatments are slowly running out. By looking at the evolution patterns of antibiotic exposed pathogenic infections, we can find new, innovative, effective, and efficient ways of treating them.
