Antibiotic resistance is when your body is immune to antibiotics so it doesn't allow your body to kill off deadly bacteria. It is a big deal because if not treated properly than there would be a world-wide epidemic.

How does natural selection influence the effectiveness of antibiotics and the deadliness of the pathogen?
