From the Paper:"BACTERIAL RESISTANCE TO ANTIBIOTICS: A MOLECULAR GENETICS PERSPECTIVE WITH A FOCUS ON STREPTOMYCIN
An antibiotic is any substance produced by a microorganism (such as bacteria or fungi) that it sends outside its cell to harm or kill another microorganism. Thus, if an organism is able to produce chemicals that inhibit or kill other nearby organisms, it has an advantage in competing for local resources (Harley, Klein, and Prescott 15).
Antibiotic resistance is a growing clinical problem as bacterial infections become more difficult to treat. An understanding of the mechanism of antibiotic resistance can enhance the effectiveness of the future development of new compounds that can combat antibiotic resistance (Leung, Hon, Wright, and Berghuis 1)."
