Polyketide assembly lines of uncultivated sponge symbionts from structure-based gene targeting.
There is increasing evidence that uncultivated bacterial symbionts are the true producers of numerous bioactive compounds isolated from marine sponges. The localization and heterologous expression ofExpand

Application of Carbon Source Utilization Patterns To Measure the Metabolic Similarity of Complex Dental Plaque Biofilm Microcosms
ABSTRACT Biolog technology was applied to measure the metabolic similarity of plaque biofilm microcosms, which model the complex properties of dental plaque in vivo. The choice of Biolog plate,Expand
