Genomic analyses have also been applied to the myxobacteria. 5), has been reported [79]; also discussed in this paper is the major problem of the identification and application of the transcriptional control mechanisms involved in secondary metabolite expression, whether in homologous or heterologous hosts [79]. Further work on the genetics and other aspects secondary metabolite production by myxobacteria have been reviewed by Weissman and M€uller [80].

The technology was rapidly embraced within the pharmaceutical industry and used to generate very large libraries of compounds with the expectation that HTS screening of vast numbers of compounds would prove to be more efficient and cost-effective than traditional approaches to drug discovery. These expectations led to the abandonment or deemphasis of natural products research at many companies. While there are claims that combinatorial chemistry is generating new leads [196], the declining numbers of new NCEs [197] indicate that the use of de novo combinatorial chemistry approaches to drug discovery over the past decade have been disappointing, with some of the earlier libraries being described as “poorly designed, impractically large, and structurally simplistic” [196].
