Crystallography Provides Battle-Plan Blueprints for Attacking Disease-Causing Bacteria
Published:18 Aug.2017    Source:Science Daily

Scientists from Trinity College Dublin have gained key structural insights into the machinery employed by opportunistic, disease-causing bacteria.

X-rays helped scientists to look under the bonnet of two common bacteria that opportunistically infect people, so as to better understand the mechanics involved. The blueprints may be used to design new drugs, which are badly needed to inhibit bacteria.
