Advances in Antibiotic Alternatives for Better Health: Promising Research for "Weeding" Bacterial Communities
|Antibiotic treatment can be like weeding a garden with|
pesticides that kill everything. Scientists are working on
more targeted approaches, like pulling individual weeds.
The broad destruction of bacteria within a human ecosystem can open the niche up to other harmful bacteria, and can cause long lasting effects due to altered bacterial recolonization. This is a similar effect to covering your entire garden with harsh herbicides to kill the weeds. You will certainly kill the weeds, but you will also destroy the beneficial flowers and vegetables. Because the resulting garden bed is an open patch of dirt, other plants will start to recolonize, including other weeds, leaving the garden very different from how it started. This is why other approaches are generally used in gardening.

And we're back! As I mentioned on my Twitter (below), I took a brief hiatus through June to focus on other projects. It was a great month, marked by gaining permission to begin writing my thesis and set the date for my defense/graduation. I am very excited to complete my graduate training and move on to the next stage in my career. But enough about me. My goal for this post is to talk a little about computer file transfer.
Just a blog update. Posting has been slowed by the hectic summer intro, but look forward to weekly posts again soon! http://t.co/DmIMl97hEs— Geoffrey Hannigan (@iprophage) June 9, 2015
