Abstract

Oral pathogens have created a menace in recent years due to biofilm formation and antimicrobial drug resistance. The current treatment strategy works well with antibiotics. However, constant use of antibiotics creates a selective pressure, which increases adaptability of the pathogens. Therefore, it is of interest to analyze the potential targets of genistein in dental pathogens using computer aided prediction tools.

 

Keywords
