CitationClardy, Jon. 2005. Using genomics to deliver natural products from symbiotic bacteria. Genome Biology 6: 232.
AbstractThe availability of some natural products with promising anticancer activity has been limited
because they are synthesized by symbiotic bacteria associated with specific animals. Recent
research has identified the clusters of bacterial genes responsible for their synthesis, so that the
molecules can be synthesized in alternative, easily cultured bacteria.
