Bioactivities Course

Bioactivity screening of marine organism is an important process in the drug discovery process with the aim to elucidate and characterize novel natural products. This course will provide state-of-the-art lectures on bioactivity screening with a wide range of applications as anti-cancer, anti-microbial, anti-obesity or anti-fouling compounds, and on high-throughput techniques.
