Microbial Natural Products: challenges – success

Natural products discovery is currently quite challenging as the rate of re-isolation is quite high. Finding new sources from under-explored habitats is one strategy to compact this issue. Using genetic and epigenetic approaches together with metabolomics analysis are of great impact in tracing new/novel products. The talk will cover some aspects of such approaches and end with a few success stories from our natural product groups.

Dr Mostafa Raeb is a lecturer in Natural product Chemistry at the University of West of Scotland and an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Aberdeen
