    Abstract
    Gliding bacteria – including Myxobacteria – have been established as acknowledged producers of valuable bioactive secondary metabolites that cannot be found from commonly screened sources like Actinobacteria. Our biological and chemical screening project of gliding bacteria continues to discover unknown potential drugs. The aim of my project is the isolation and chemical and biological characterization of these secondary metabolites and to study their potential applicability as antibiotics.
