CRISPR’s potential across STEM research is exploding, and the ACS In Focus editors are seeking an author or author team to write on the foundations around this topic. Learn more.
Antibacterials covers the topics relevant to entering this field of study. We discuss basic bacterial biology and the roles that bacteria play in the world. We also cover the history of antibacterials, both ancient and modern, as well as how commercial antibiotics work on a biochemical level. We examine the interplay between resistance, tolerance, and virulence, the threat that they pose, and ways that scientists are thinking about addressing them. Finally, we provide an overview of the antibacterial development process from initial lead discovery to clinical trials and commercialization.
Antibacterials includes dynamic, multimedia content including animations, illustrations, video, a pop-up glossary, and more.
