Tutor description

Antibiotics are drugs that target bacteria, inhibiting their growth and potentially destroying them. A distinguishing feature between bacteria and humans (as well as other eukaryotes) is the difference in ribosome structure. Ribosomes are key cellular elements responsible for making proteins that will contribute to subsequent structure and function processes critical for life/ replication. So without ribosomes chances for survival for any living cell is unlikely. This assignment highlights the role of ribosomes, differences between eukaryotic and prokaryotic ribosomes, and why these differences have proven advantageous in tackling bacterial infections.
