Recent research by a team at Boston University spearheaded by Mark Brynildsen, now Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Princeton, has shown how bacteria can be forced to increase their production of reactive oxygen species (ROS)—either killing the bacteria outright, or making them vulnerable to antibiotics at lower dosages.  By developing genome-scale metabolic models describing the production of reactive oxygen species in the bacterium E. coli, and then pert
