Natural products and their derivatives have historically been our best medicines. This is likely due to the fact that natural products have evolved to interact exquisitely with other biological molecules and systems. Until now, mining natural products for important medicinal activities has always been challenging.

Synthetic Biodesign has developed Synthetic Biology-based tools and methods to identify near limitless numbers of natural products for development as important new medicines. These methods and tools are being used to develop new treatments for diseases lacking in therapeutic options.
