This two-minute radio program introduces listeners to science's search for drugs in aquatic organisms. The program focuses on one university research project and its efforts to discover antiviral compounds in the marine life found by offshore oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. The project leader explains how antiviral compounds function to block the activity of viruses. Scientists are looking to synthesize large quantities of drugs by copying the medically useful compounds isolated from living organisms. Underwater noises provide the background for this archived Pulse of the Planet program, and a transcript is included. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
