New machine learning model leads to the discovery of powerful antibiotics

Author: Manuel J. Arroyo Pulgar Using a machine-learning algorithm, MIT researchers have identified a powerful new antibiotic compound. In laboratory preliminary test, the drug killed many of the world’s most problematic disease-causing bacteria, including Acinetobacter baumannii and Enterobacteriaceae. To understand the relevance of such discovery, these bacteria are two of three high-priority pathogens that the Read more about New machine learning model leads to the discovery of powerful antibiotics[…]
