Title: “The Deep Oceans: Discovering Chemical Complexity and Exploring the Opportunity for New Medicines” Natural Products have provided the foundation for organic chemistry by providing structural complexity and unpredicted chemical reactivities. These resources have also been the foundation of drug discovery with an estimated 50% of today’s drugs being derived from natural sources. Recent revelations defining chemically-rich microbes from the vast deep ocean environment has provided unprecedented access to new sources of chemically unique and highly bioactive molecules.
