New tool, RODEO, promises to capture the breadth of microbial biosynthetic potential

A new bioinformatics advance reveals the power of ‘big data’ genome technology to help us make better use of nature’s inventions: a team of researchers has created a tool that searches through microbial genomes, identifying clusters of genes that indicate an organism’s ability to synthesize therapeutically promising molecules.
