The DNA in a number of the drug-resistant microorganisms has been decoded to reveal the sequence of information that predicts the nature of the organism, which includes gene sequences responsible for drug resistance. Science can discover new ways to neutralize the resistance with this information. Works Cited • S TRATEGIES TO R EDUCE A NTIBIOTIC R ESISTANCE , P HARMACEUTICAL R EPRESENTATIVE .
