Modular synthesis enables molecular ju-jitsu in the fight against antibiotic resistance

An ancient resistance mechanism poses a problem when using streptogramin antibiotics. A modular approach to drug synthesis exploits this same mechanism to generate an antibiotic that avoids the emergence of resistance.
