|Scientists explore ant microbiota in search of new drugs|
This project aims to study the microbial community associated with the symbiosis between myrmecophytes of the genus Cecropia and ants of the genus Azteca, as well as the secondary metabolites produced in this interaction. Microorganisms associated with social insects have been extensively studied as sources of new chemical structures with antimicrobial activity and there are no studies ...
Insect-associated microorganisms have been studied as sources of new antimicrobial natural products, and these compounds frequently mediate ecological interactions. In this context, this project aims to study the microbial community associated with the colony of stingless bee species Scaptotrigona depilis involved in the protection of the system against the insect pathogen Beauveria bas...
Microorganisms associated with social insects have been extensively studied as sources of new chemical structures with antimicrobial activity; however, there are no reports in the literature about the secondary metabolites produced by microorganisms associated with the Cecropia-Azteca interaction. In an ongoing PhD project, seven strains of actinobacteria were isolated from Cecropia-Azt...
