Spontaneous Bacterial Mutations to Resistance to Antibacterial Agents
Luria pondered the mechanisms by which multiple mutants arise, and believed that the bacterial mutations discussed here presented
analogies with gene mutations in higher organisms. This paper also discussed the identification of single mutation steps in
strains with different genotypes and of multiple effects of mutations. Luria spent the 1945-1946 academic year on leave in
Cold Spring Harbor, directing a government research project on bacterial resistance to antibiotics. The research produced
several papers, including this one.
