Sorting the myriad medicinal molecules of coral reefs

Coral reefs harbor an incredible diversity of life. These organisms generate an enormous number of molecules. Researchers have identified several coral reef-derived molecules as having medicinal properties, yet many thousands more are unknown to science. A new study describes a promising new method for screening the molecular output of reef life for important chemical properties, which could make it much easier to identify new coral reef-derived drugs. …read more
