Biochemist Jody Puglisi, late of UCSC and now at Stanford, was a key part of a large article on antibiotic resistance in the Dallas Morning News. The article described work in Puglisi's UCSC lab to determine the structure of a complex between an antibiotic molecule and the piece of a bacteria that it jams. The Seattle Times also printed the story.
