Project Details

Project Description

This project will uncover the hidden biodiversity of fish venoms, a neglected area of research. This will
contribute to the body of knowledge regarding molecular evolutionary selection pressures shaping defensive
toxins, while having significant potential for the discovery of novel compounds useful as lead molecules for
drug design and development.
