QS controls a variety of important processes of vital activity of microorganisms, including such important for Biomedicine, such as the development of factors of virulence (ability to infect) antibiotic resistance and formation of biofilms (microorganisms attached to each other on any surface).
— A group of young scientists experimentally investigated medicinal plants of the Orenburg region as the source of a new class of compounds that suppress the course of physiological and physicochemical processes of bacteria, — says Anna .
