- ... OBJECTIVE: The objective of this work was to isolate bacteria from Red Sea invertebrates, determine their antimicrobial activity, and screen for the biosynthetic gene clusters [polyketides (PKs) and nonribosomal peptides (NRPs)] which could be involved in the production of bioactive secondary metabolites. RESULT: Eleven different samples of marine invertebrates’ were collected from Egypt’s Red Sea ...
