THIS STREAM IS NO LONGER ACTIVE.

Full Stream Name: Bioprospecting: Isolation of Biologically Active Natural Products from Endophytes

Principal Investigator: Christine Hawkes

 

What biologically active compounds can be obtained from endophytes present in native Texas plants?

The primary objective of the Bioprospecting stream is to isolate, characterize, cultivate, process and screen unique fungal endophytes from Central Texas for the discovery of compounds with potential therapeutic applications.The stream will span multiple sub-disciplines of biology and chemistry.  Our primary focus is mycology, molecular biology, and organic chemistry.

While working towards the primary objective, we also investigate questions regarding the ecology of fungal endophtyes.
