The explosive growth of research in microbial metabolism in the past two decades has been due largely to the unending efforts of drug companies to find new antibiotics. These efforts and related research in academic laboratories have piled up mountains of data on the varieties of compounds produced by bacteria, molds, fungi, and lichens and on the metabolic pathways leading to these compounds. Descriptions of metabolites in this Handbook are grouped by structural similarities into separate chapters. Such groupings include those of carotenes, anthraquinones, amino acids, polypeptides, indoles, purines, and so forth. Each description of a metabolite includes physical and
