Jens Christian Nielsen: Antibiotic discovery

​Infectious microorganisms resistant to antibiotic treatment constitute one of the major global threats to human health according to WHO. Despite this, the development of antibiotics has stagnated since the 1970s, and today only few companies are actively developing new antibiotics. This presentation will address the underlying reasons for this seemingly paradox and explain how genome sequencing of soil microorganism can fuel the development of novel antibiotics.
