By performing the equivalent of autopsies on bacteria, researchers have developed a new method for developing & characterizing new potential antibiotics. The approach combines microscopy & quantitative biology tools and is the first time that a single test can be performed and identify the likely mechanism of action for a new chemical or compound. The method has also been miniaturized so that only a few nanograms of each chemical candidate is required.More info: http://bit.ly/14aQe0TPublication: Bacterial cytological profiling rapidly identifies the cellular pathways targeted by antibacterial molecules.
