Reverse Engineering Superbugs @ bunnie’s blog

While the result of this just-for-the-fun-of-it exercise isn’t a cure for the superbug, the neat thing about living here in The Future is that just a few days after an outbreak of a deadly disease halfway across the world, the sequence of the organism is now available for download and with free, open tools anyone can perform a simple analysis. This is a nascent, but promising, technology ecosystem.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. a lot of times what’s done to combat against superbugs is to just slightly change the molecule it’s resistant against

    it changes enough to where the bacteria’s resistant mechanisms can’t recognise it yet it still works in the same way that the previous molecule did

    bunnie’s idea of trying to check for genes of resistance that it doesn’t have is a good idea too

    in either case you risk creating a new superbug that can withstand what you’ve just done to it
