Computer Generated Antibiotics, Biosensor Band-Aids

Computer Generated Antibiotics, Biosensor Band-Aids

Imagine if a computer could learn from molecules found in nature and use an algorithm to generate new ones. Then imagine those molecules could get printed and tested in a lab against some of the nastiest, most dangerous bacteria out there—bacteria quickly becoming resistant to our current antibiotic options.
