Detectives search for drug resistant organisms

Antibiotics were once called miracle drugs because they revolutionised treatment of disease, curing bacterial infections that used to lead to debilitation and, all too often, death. Not only humans, but also livestock and pets have benefited from these wonder drugs. But over the years, some bacterial pathogens have developed resistance to the antibiotics that once spelled their doom.
