We’re studying tetracycline antibiotics in Microbiology class. Because in Pharmacy school, ANY subject is an excuse to study even more organic chemistry. There’s no such thing as too much o-chem! And since we’re pharmacy students and not biology students, our Micro classes don’t focus as much on the etiology or evolutionary traits of bacteria and viruses; but rather they tend to focus on a) their structural characteristics and life cycle and b) how to use this knowledge to design drugs to get rid of them.

    I hate chemical structures but whatever :/

    Is there a naturally occurring compound in bacteria that these mimic? Because these structures don’t look like...
