2014). Differences between the MSn spectra of metabolites can be computed and used to determine structural similarity. The Dorrenstein and Gerwick research groups applied this method to a cyanobacterial 42 Bioactive Compounds from Extremophiles culture collection, which included strains that produced known metabolites and their corresponding analogs. Several producers of known metabolites, such as malyngamide C, with notable bioactivity were identified, demonstrating that this method can be used to identify more abundant sources of metabolites of interest.

However, the bioactivity of natural products is still commonly determined using target-mediated inhibition. Determining the true biological function of these small molecules within the context of a microorganism’s ecosystem has been limited by the lack of in situ technology for realtime monitoring of the in vivo production of natural products. Over the past two decades, other methods of generating ions, such as desorption ionization methods, have been developed to generate mass ions from thermally labile and nonvolatile solids.
