- Yale Compound Repository is a collection of compounds synthesized by Yale chemists. We are actively building this collection and would be happy to include your compounds. We need mg quantities of each compound, and the structure in ChemDraw format. These compounds are available, free of per assay plate charge, for use in screens by the Yale community.
Rain Forest and Other Natural Products Collection
Yale Rainforest Collection is currently arrayed in 384-well plates. Extracts were created from cultures of bacterial and fungal endophytes that were isolated from rainforest plants and soil samples worldwide. This raw extract collection has been standardized to a consistent concentration but the number of components will vary with the source and extract. Confirmed hits will be subsequently subject to bio-assay guided fractionation for identification of active components. These compounds are available, free of per assay plate charge, for use in screens by the Yale community.
