Seminar: Discovery of Novel Pharmaceuticals from Marine and Desert Microorganisms
In this seminar, we’ll be talking about MNPs! MNPs are Marine Natural Products which represent the drugs isolated from marine sources. The ocean covers more than 80% of biodiversity in comparison with terrestrial biodiversity. Since marine species live under extreme conditions, they produce chemically unique compounds, which are of high interest in the pharmaceutical industry. Thus, marine organisms are a potential source of novel antimicrobial compounds. Every year, almost 1000 novel metabolites are added to the literature from marine source. The marine source emerges as the frontier of medical research.
