Characterizing enzymes to explode superbugs

Posted by jsweitz

Gabriel Mitchell and Joshua Weitz -- from our group here at the Georgia Institute of Technology -- collaborated with Daniel Nelson, a biochemist specializing in phage lytic enzymes at the University of Maryland, in a collaborative project to develop a novel assay to quantify how a new class of enzybiotics can explode bacterial pathogens. The results are available online on Physical Biology.
