Natural extracts screening for bioactive compounds detection of clinical interest. In this sense, Valoralia has opened two main research lines that are anti-infectious and antitumor, each being composed of other specific and independent sublines (antivirals, antifungals…).

In the innovative and evolving field of molecular biology, and especially in metagenomics, Valoralia performs a daring project focused on obtaining gene libraries of clusters type PKSs and NRPSs,  that are responsible for the biosynthesis of the majority of the compounds and secondary metabolites of cyanobacteria and microalgae.
