Screening and Culturing
Work Package 3: Screening and Culturing
This workpackage involves the use of both culture-dependent microbiological and culture-independent (metagenomic) based approaches to identify micro-organisms or metagenomic clones which produce compounds with potential antibiotic activities. Micro-organisms associated with marine organisms, particularly sponges, are specifically being targeted to isolate, extract and analyse bioactive compounds.
