One of the most important problems in contemporary medicine is antibiotic resistance. The efficiency of our present therapies is deteriorating as bacteria acquire resistance to available antibiotics, increasing the frequency of diseases that are challenging or impossible to cure. Researchers have created a range of algorithms and methodologies for investigating antibiotic resistance in bacteria in order to address this issue. I'll discuss a novel methodology for examining bacterial resistance to antibiotics in this post. I'll talk about an algorithm known as the "Fitness Landscape Algorithm." A group of scientists at the University of California, San Diego, under the direction of Dr. Jeffrey Hasty, created this algorithm [1].
