Harvard team cracks code for new drug resistant superbugs



Harvard team cracks code for new drug resistant superbugs







National Institutes of Health-funded scientists have determined the genetic sequences of all 12 available strains of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria resistant to vancomycin -- an antibiotic of last resort -- and have demonstrated that resistance arose independently in each strain after it acquired a specific bit of genetic material called transposon Tn1546.
