Mass Spectrometry Helps Scientists Elucidate Bacterial Microbiomes

John McLean, of Vanderbilt University, describes the new 'Fight-Club' mass spectrometry technique, which will help elucidate new drug molecules. This technique has been designed to utilize the evolutionary pressure placed on cave-dwelling bacteria causing them to have developed chemicals to fight off predatory bacteria, which scientists hope could be used as drug targets.
