When Bacteria Outsmart Antibiotics,...

Since bacteria grow and reproduce quickly, they also quickly adapt on a genetic level to pressures from the outside through genetic mutations and even through acquiring genes from other bacteria. If those genetic changes make the bacteria resistant to a given antibiotic, then it will survive when...
