Clad in scuba gear, with an air tank attached to his back, a casual observer might mistake William Fenical for a particularly intrepid archaeologist. But rather than examining the artifacts hidden away at the bottom of the sea Bill is looking for antibiotics to save human lives.

In this episode of Symptomatic, Motherboard meets Fenical and his team at Scripps Institution of Oceanography to learn about the future of antibiotics, and speak to specialists and researchers about just how important these discoveries are to ensuring a future of the human race against the ever growing threat of resistant disease.
