Libis team - Cryptic Microbial Metabolites

We are interested in discovering novel bioactive microbial metabolites. Microbial metabolites play important roles in medicine and they are a key source of antibiotics, anticancer agents or immunosuppressants. We develop sequencing, bioinformatics and synthetic biology methods to rapidly detect and characterize novel genes responsible for the biosynthesis of cryptic microbial metabolites. We also work on involving the general public in helping to source new medicines through citizen science projects.
