NaPDoS is a web-based bioinformatic tool that can be used to identify and extract KS- and C-domains according to a BLAST search against a database of different PKS, NRPS, and hybrid clusters . Furthermore, with NaPDoS it is possible to construct a phylogenetic tree based on the pairwise sequence similarity of KS- or C-domains. 0 . For the assignment of SMGCs according to their phylogeny, this means that KS- or C-domains belonging to the same cluster, but present on different contigs, are likely to fall in the same phylogenetic clade.

Mol Microbiol 101:194–209 Chapter 2 Mining Bacterial Genomes for Secondary Metabolite Gene Clusters Martina Adamek, Marius Spohn, Evi Stegmann, and Nadine Ziemert Abstract With the emergence of bacterial resistance against frequently used antibiotics, novel antibacterial compounds are urgently needed. Traditional bioactivity-guided drug discovery strategies involve laborious screening efforts and display high rediscovery rates. With the progress in next generation sequencing methods and the knowledge that the majority of antibiotics in clinical use are produced as secondary metabolites by bacteria, mining bacterial genomes for secondary metabolites with antimicrobial activity is a promising approach, which can guide a more time and cost-effective identification of novel compounds.
