Chemistry Hub

The Tiny Earth Chemistry Hub brings the discovery of the instructors and students to new heights. The long-term objective of the Tiny Earth Chemistry Hub is to discovery novel antibiotics. Students and instructors from across the nation can contribute their isolates to the growing collection of antibiotic producing isolates housed at Wisconsin Institute for Discovery. Once isolates enter the collection they are evaluated and prioritized based on genomic and metabolomics results.

The Tiny Earth Chemistry Hub is part of he TE network and aims to connect with the classrooms through interactive and results sharing platforms.
