Sensing of antibiotic–bacteria interactions is an important area of research that has gained significant attention in recent years. Antibiotic resistance is a major public health concern, and it is essential to develop new strategies for detecting and monitoring bacterial responses to antibiotics in order to maintain effective antibiotic development and antibacterial treatment. This review summarizes recent advances in sensing strategies for antibiotic–bacteria interactions, which are divided into two main parts: studies on the mechanism of action for sensitive bacteria and interrogation of the defense mechanisms for resistant ones. In conclusion, this review provides an overview of the present research landscape concerning antibiotic–bacteria interactions, emphasizing the potential for method adaptation and the integration of machine learning techniques in data analysis, which could potentially lead to a transformative impact on mechanistic studies within the field.
