This basic technique is still used to produce many antibiotics.
Alexander Fleming, was an accidental finding. Significant differences of opinion existed between the government scientists at Peoria, who preferred scientific disclosure of information, and the pharmaceutical industry's principally Merck and Company, Charles Pfizer and Company, E.
