Derek, a Chemical Biology student, is using the phenotype of biofilm stimulation by sub inhibitory concentrations of antibiotics to identify new activities in small molecule libraries and complex mixtures of natural products. Pseudomonas makes increased biofilm in response to antibiotics at concentrations well below the MIC, and this response flags a molecule as potentially toxic to bacteria.
