Rohan Davis
Marine- and plant-derived lead-like enhanced extract (>18,000), fraction (>90,000) and pure compound (>100) libraries Samples have been processed into three unique libraries: a lead-like extract library, a lead-like fraction library, and a pure compound library, which are ready for screening to discover new bioactive compounds in a range of applications (e.g., biomedical, agrochemical, nutraceutical). Also holds more than 30,000 archived biota samples. These libraries represent the unique biodiversity of Australia, which translates into novel chemical diversity.
