Secondary metabolite discovery from bacteria has become increasingly successful in the last decade due to the advancement of integrated genetic-based, spectrometric-based and informatics-based techniques. Microbes and their unique metabolic outputs have been widely studied since the beginning of modern medicine; however, it is well known that the current repertoire of secondary metabolites, or more commonly natural products, is incomplete and the understanding of natural product-mediated… CONTINUE READING
