Describing some of the diverse sources of natural products for drug discovery, this book also outlines how research in molecular biology and biochemistry has increased knowledge of biological systems and human disease. Although science has discovered effective drugs for many of the diseases that afflict mankind, many human health problems remain untreatable. The search for novel therapeutic agents is always ongoing. This book will describe some of the diverse sources of natural products, such as terrestrial and marine environments; and reviews how research has increased knowledge of biological systems and human disease, leading to the design of targeted assays, amenable to high volume screening.
