Penicillin was the first antibiotic to be discovered. The source of penicillin is a fungus called Penicillium, from which the antibiotic was named.


Penicillin can now be produced commercially by fermentation of the fungus and a sugary substrate.


Many bacterial diseases are still treated with penicillin, although an increasing number of strains of bacteria have now evolved a resistance to it and to other antibiotics as well, by natural selection.


It is therefore important to complete a course of antibiotics, if prescribed, to kill all the harmful bacteria, rather than allowing those which are still alive towards the end of the course to survive and reproduce.
