Improved nanoscale drills kill bacteria directly and revive existing antibiotics

Molecular machines that kill infectious bacteria have been designed to work with a more clinically useful light source of energy. The latest iterations of these synthetic nanoscale or molecular machinery (MM), developed by researchers at Rice University, are activated by visible light rather than ultraviolet (UV), as in earlier versions. Tests of burn-related bacterial infections …
