Eco-taxonomic insights into actinomycete symbionts of termites for discovery of novel bioactive compounds.

Abstract

Termites play a major role in foraging and degradation of plant biomass as well as cultivating bioactive microorganisms for their defense. Current advances in "omics" sciences are revealing insights into function-related presence of these symbionts, and their related biosynthetic activities and genes identified in gut symbiotic bacteria might offer a… (More)
