By combining methdos from chemistry, biology and informatics, the researchs aim to look for antibiotics that target bacterial “riboswitches”. The team will describe and predict how small molecules can interact with these structures.
Innovation: The researchers look for small molecules that can be further developed into novel antibiotics.
The project is financed by the Norwegian Research Councils FRIMEDBIO program.
