Terrestrische Cyanobakterien als Quelle für antimikrobielle Wirkstoffe


Cyanobacteria developed an enormous reservoir of bioactive secondary metabolites in order to prevail against competitive microorganisms and harsh environmental impacts. Many cyanobacterial substances with vast economical, medical and biotechnological potential have been
described in the past. However, most of the examined bacteria are
aquatic strains. We want to take a closer look on their terrestrial relatives which also possess a rich secondary metabolome that is still to explore.
