Rohan Davis -

Marine- and plant-derived lead-like enhanced extract (>18,000), fraction (>90,000) and pure compound (>100) libraries

The NatureBank 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, etc). NatureBank also holds more than 30,000 archived biota samples. These libraries represent the unique biodiversity of Australia, which translates into novel chemical diversity.
