The Rockefeller Foundation played a pivotal role in launching and developing that antibiotic era by supporting global research, which included the efforts of investigators working in small laboratories and in hospitals, including at the bedsides of patients, asking questions and discussing test results.

The natural history of antibiotic resistance genes can be revealed through the phylogenetic reconstruction and this kind of analysis suggests the long-term presence of genes conferring resistance to several classes of antibiotics in nature well before the antibiotic era (Aminov and Mackie, ; Kobayashi et al., ).Cited by: The Rockefeller University Achievements A Century of Science for the Benefit of Humankind, – Author: Elizabeth Hanson.
