ABX: The Antibiotic Discovery Accelerator Network

Image result for ABX: The Antibiotic Discovery Accelerator NetworkI missed the last day at FEMS in Glasgow because of a meeting on Antibiotic Discovery held at the Eden Project organised by Matt Uptons group at the University of Plymouth. ABX: The Antibiotic Discovery Accelerator Network was set up to bring together complementary expertise, identify challenges and bottlenecks and stimulate collaboration. The first day consisted of 19 talks which ran the gamut from antibiotic discovery in the Arctic, drug repurposing, efflux pump crystallography, molecular dynamics and plain old seaweed extracts (see here). A very useful overview of the field! Afterwards we had a nice diner; unfortunately I could not be present at the second day due to other commitments but will follow up with Matt and his team soon.
