Welcome to the Department of Energy Operating Experience Wiki


The Department of Energy (DOE) AU-23 Operating Experience Program manages and exchanges operating experience data from across and outside the DOE Complex in order to share good work practices and prevent adverse events. On this Wiki, you'll find links to reports and information on a variety of useful safety and operational topics.

Computer simulations unlock the secrets of antibiotic resistance


Computer simulations unlock the secrets of antibiotic resistance, fromthe Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) explains a strategy to combat antibiotic
resistant bacteria, theoretical biologists at LANL are simulating how some microbes use protein structures to flush out the drugs before they kill the bacteria.
At an atom level, the simulations show the efflux pumps in action, giving researchers a new tool for figuring out how to disable the pumps. That would allow
some currently powerless antibiotics to once again cure a range of public health threats.

What is a Wiki?


A wiki is a website that allows members to easily edit the content of the page. This page is a wiki, and you as a member can edit the content. The primary content of the wiki is text, but you can add images, videos, and other media that will share operational experience and enhance safety. Before you start editing this wiki you may want to check out the wiki Help to access some simple information on editing - or you can simply click the EDIT button on the upper right of each page and experiment!
