A Marine Biodiscovery Laboratory in Ireland


See the recent publication from Alan Dobson's group at University College Cork as part of the National Marine Biodiscovery project. This paper describes the genome mining and cultivation, as well as a metabolomic analysis, of a Streptomyces sp. isolated from a marine sponge and a terrestrial derived S. albidoflavus to investigate the biosynthesis and production of the known metabolite, Surugamide A. This resulted in the identification factors involved in a differential production of Surugamide A between the marine and terrestrial Streptomyces sp.
