New drugs from marine microbes: the tide is turning

  title={New drugs from marine microbes: the tide is turning},
  author={David J. Newman and Russell T Hill},
  journal={Journal of Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology},
This is a mini-review demonstrating that investigation of the genomics of marine microbes from all three domains has the potential to revolutionize the search for secondary metabolites originally thought to be the product of marine invertebrates. The basis for the review was a symposium at the 2005 Annual Meeting of the SIM covering some aspects of the potential for marine microbes to be the primary producers of such metabolites. The work reported at that symposium has been integrated into a… CONTINUE READING
