How Bacteria Communicate: Next Gen AntiBiotics

I came across an outstanding talk by Bonnie Bassler in TED. The talk is on the molecular biology. I used to be a good student of Biology during my Undergraduate classes in Nepal.
Traditionally we have been killing the Bacteria and hence evolution will make the mutant bacteria which are resistant to the AntiBiotics. We have seen the failure of the same medicine over the time because of such development of drug resistant properties of Bacteria.  In this talk she talks about the new way to cure the attack of bacteria.
It is amazing in the sense that it turns the things around.

Watch the video...

If they can not communicate... they can not launch the attack!
