Weekend read: Imagining the post-antibiotics future

So much my 2013 has been taken up by antibiotic resistance that it seems only appropriate for the final Weekend Read of the year to be on that topic. And it’s a particularly good example, too!

The wonderful Maryn McKenna has written this brilliant long-form article on Medium which personalises the concept at the same time as giving plenty of scientific background. It’s well worth a read this weekend!
