Interests: natural products isolation and characterization; bioassay-guided purification of natural products / drug discovery; isolation of natural product producing bacteria and fungi; development of fermentation methods to optimize natural product production; description of microbial communities in marine invertebrates
Fungi from marine habitats continue to provide a prolific resource for natural product discovery. Current research in marine fungal natural product discovery focuses on topics ranging from the isolation of new fungal taxa to the isolation and characterization of new compounds. Additionally, with the growing awareness of the presence of cryptic natural products in fungal genomes, efforts are underway in numerous labs to develop new methods to induce the expression of such compounds. The goal of this Marine Drugs Special Issue is to assemble a collection of research articles outlining progress in these interrelated disciplines.
