Self-introduction
Organisms produce huge variety of metabolites, some of which are secreted out of cells. They sometimes act as antibiotics to secure the niche. Others may play roles in adapting to harsh conditions. We're exploring novel metabolites with unexpected biological activities, from microbes and marine organisms.
