Bacterial Metabolomics

Metabolomics

Microorganisms have a long-standing tradition as a source of biologically active small molecules – termed “secondary metabolites“. Besides activity-guided isolation, metabolomics based strategies are becoming increasingly successful in revealing additional natural products. These approaches hold great promise for uncovering novel secondary metabolites from bacterial and fungal strains. Examples for biologically active compounds are novel antibiotics to target resistant pathogens.
