CCLS Webinar: Computational Omics Strategies for Natural Product Discovery
- Tuesday 15 June 2021
Computational Omics Strategies for Natural Product Discovery
Plants, fungi and bacteria produce a wealth of specialized metabolites, which are a great source for natural product drug discovery. Due to the accelerated accumulation of omics data, computational methods have become more and more important to identify these molecules and to assess their biological activities. Here, I will highlight the work performed in my research group on using these approaches to accelerate natural product discovery. Specifically, I will discuss the use of computational approaches to investigate biosynthetic diversity across large numbers of genomes, integrative genome/metabolome mining to link gene clusters to molecules, and computational approaches to predict biological activities of molecules based on omics data.
