A Bacterial Lifestyle Switch Provides Antibiotic Resistance

Researchers have reported for the first time that following contact with certain antibiotics the pathogenic Bacillus cereus can switch into a special slowed-down mode and form small colony variants that are difficult to diagnose and almost impossible to treat with certain antibiotics.  More...
