Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria are highly resistant to antibiotics. They infect people with cystic fibrosis and other diseases. During infection they coat themselves with a sticky slime (alginate) that had been thought to protect them from antibiotics. In this research we degraded the alginate surrounding the bacteria. However their susceptibility to an antibiotic (gentamicin) did not significantly change suggesting that the alginate is not a factor in bacterial resistance to this antibiotic.
