One of the daunting battles scientists are fighting now is preventing antibiotic resistance of certain bacteria that cause lethal diseases. Some bacteria have evolved resistance to almost all antibiotics that are in use today.

After watching the microbes replicate on the microbe clock, read the discussion with four experts about how to reduce the threat of more bacteria developing a resistance to antibiotics and what corrective measures we can make in our own lives to perhaps slow the bacterial resistance.
