Great Scientific News

Paula and Daniel are both stressed from having a lot to do at work, Paula also from her studies. The whole world seems stressed, since there is financial unrest and grave economic recession. It was a cold, grey, and rainy day today. In days like this, it feels nice to read great news. There are scientists in the Netherlands who have decoded the DNA sequence of penicillin, the fungus that is the most prominent antibiotics known. This will probably lead to further discoveries in new antibiotics, which is a good thing in the struggles against the bacteria that are resistent to common antibiotics and that can be found more and more often. Antibiotics have saved the lives of many dogs, as well as many humans. The possible development of new and improved antibiotics is a great thing. Can there be better news in a gloomy day like today?
