AI Fights Superbugs: Help find a new antibiotic drug to fight drug resistant infections

AI technology has helped researchers at MIT and McMaster University identify a new antibiotic called abaucin that is effective against Acinetobacter baumannii, a drug-resistant hospital bacterium. The drug, discovered through a machine learning model, is significant for its narrow-spectrum efficacy and unique mechanism of disrupting the trafficking of lipoproteins within bacterial cells. The machine learning … Read more
