|Studying Natural Products
|The National Cancer Institute's Natural Products Branch at the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research is the largest program to collect materials worldwide from marine, plant, and microbial sources so they may be studied for possible medical uses. Both a water and an organic solvent extract are produced for each organism that is brought into the lab. All processed specimens receive a barcode label which identifies the organism and allows both processing history and biological testing to be tracked. Every stage of processing and handling is recorded into a computer database.
