What is one reason that researchers are studying Komodo dragons to learn about antibiotic resistance?

Some bacteria that infect humans have become resistant to antibiotics that are used to treat the infections. (Here is a link to a scholarly article, but you do not need to read it for this engagement forum activity, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4378521/). When researchers are trying to figure out how to overcome this problem, they often look to natural systems to find the answers.
