About this book

Chemical Biology of Natural Products addresses contemporary aspects of natural product chemistry and biology, including natural product discovery, isolation and characterization, biosynthesis, biosynthetic engineering and pharmaceutical and other applications. Each chapter begins with a brief and simple introduction to the subject and then proceeds to guide the reader towards the more contemporary, cutting-edge research in the field.

Contributing authors present examples from their own work in order to exemplify key themes. Topics covered in the text include genome mining, heterologous expression, therapeutic applications, natural product synthesis, biosynthesis, glycosylation, and chemical ecology.
