  • Natural products have proven to be a good source of anticancer drugs since the 1940’s. In fact, they have influenced the creation of 65% of all 246 anticancer drugs since that time. Fungi in particular provide an almost untapped source of compounds with promising bioactivity. To access compounds from natural products, an extraction and purification process using flash chromatography, and high performance liquid chromatography is needed. Characterization of those compounds is done using high… CONTINUE READING
