Data from the Medicinal Plant Consortium (MPC), an NIH supported project (GM092521) focused on harnessing knowledge from medicinal plant species. Natural products from plants serve as rich resources for drug development with almost 100 plant-derived compounds in clinical trials in 2007. Plant derived natural products have had a profound and lasting impact on human health and include compounds successfully used for decades such as digitalis, vincristine, Taxol and morphine isolated from foxglove, periwinkle, yew, and opium poppy. The enormous structural diversity and biological activities of plant-derived compounds suggest that additional, medicinally relevant compounds remain to be discovered in plants. MPC [metabolomics; transcriptomics data] encompasses 13 collaborating research units from 7 institutions.
