Research Reveals New Evolutive Mechanism of Bacteria that Expands Pathogenic Potential (News Medical)

This new evolutive mechanism has been identified in the Staphylococcus aureus genus, which is of critical priority for the WHO due to its multi-resistance to antibiotics and its ability to cause severe infections.
