A very large number of biologically active compounds from microorganisms have been discovered so far, mainly by screening programs based on such biological activities as antibacterial, antitumor, antiviral, etc. Nevertheless, the search for new bioactive compounds of microbial origin continues by the application of new screening methods, advancement of experimental techniques, and discovery of new sources.
