    About This Project

    The search for alternative antibiotics is on, due to widespread resistance to current antibiotics. We will use bioinformatic and molecular analysis to determine if there are peptides with antimicrobial activity in the skin of the Colombian frog (Hypsiboas pugnax). We believe that the dorsal region of this frog’s the skin, due to terrestrial and predator contact, produces wide variety of antimicrobial peptides.
