Featured bugs


In this section, we feature different bacterial or fungal strains that either are pathogenic to humans or that are used to produce biologically active compounds.

The selection is focused on pathogenic strains that are of particular concern to health authorities due to the increase in resistance to currently used anti-infectives. Additionally, we feature non-pathogenic micro-organisms from which important new drugs have been isolated, directly or indirectly, or from which novel chemical lead structures were identified.
