Marine Bioprosepcting

In recent years marine natural product bioprospecting has yielded a considerable number of drug candidates. StudiesĀ  suggests that marine organisms may turn out to be a more important source of anticancer, anti viral , anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive compounds than terrestrial plants. Realizing the potential of marine environment, NCAAH ventured into this field and looking for novel metabolites from marine environment with biomedical importance.
