Biological diversity of marine organisms offers an overwhelming diversity of compounds and, therefore, produces higher hits of active secondary metabolites as compared to terrestrial plants. Research in marine drug discovery is always hindered with limited access of marine organisms made available to researchers. Therefore, it is important for a coordinated sampling activities to be carried out to collect the marine organisms in sustainable manner in order to ensure minimal disturbace is introduced to their habitats and ecosystem.
A team of well trained and experienced divers and researchers will spearhead the Marine Sample Request Programme in order to allow our clients and researchers to obtain access to marine organisms/samples through our sustainable approach in sampling activities.
