Blueprint of globomycin created by Trinity researchers combats antibiotic resistance

The high resolution blueprint of the substance created by a team led by Trinity’s Professor Martin Caffery has been long sought after in the battle to delay the post-antibiotic era


A clear molecular blueprint of globomycin, a substance which could be important in the design of new antibiotics, has been produced for the first time by researchers from the department of biochemistry immunology in Trinity College.

The importance of globomycin …
