Scientists model outer membrane of 12 bacterial species to speed new drugs for 'bad bugs'

(Lehigh University) Wonpil Im of Lehigh University and his team have investigated the bilayer properties of 21 distinct Lipid A types from 12 gram-negative bacterial species -- an important step in paving the way to new antibiotic drug development. Their results have been published today in an article in Biophysical Journal titled: 'Bilayer Properties of Lipid A from Various Gram-negative Bacteria.
