Game InfoEdit

The invention of Penicillin represents the great advancement in the field of medicine in modern times. Healing becomes more and more effective when scientific principles are applied to it, and the invention of this miraculous medicine proves it.

The technology allows building of the Medical Lab, the ultimate population growth-enhancing building; it also allows the creation of the Marine infantry, specialized in sea warfare.

Historical InfoEdit

Penicillin is a group of antibiotics derived from a certain fungus. Antibiotics fight and kill bacteria, tiny life-forms, some of which - plague, syphilis, and leprosy, to name but three - are quite detrimental to human health and well-being. It is believed that the use of a primitive form of penicillin dates back to medieval times, when moldy bread was employed to treat suppurating wounds. The scientific discovery of the antibiotic is attributed to Alexander Fleming in 1928, with the first official medical use some two years later by pathologist Cecil George Paine. As its use has grown, some bacteria have developed a tolerance for penicillin and a wide range of other antibiotics have been invented to deal with the new drug-resistant strains. Still, penicillin and its heirs remain important weapons in the physician's unending battle with the deadly menace of bacteria. In the later half of the 20th century bacteria becomes useful in Genetic Engineering to create new Bio technology products such as Bacteria that can clean up an oil spill.
