Microbial specialized metabolites play key roles in microbiome interactions, but their biosynthetic pathways are difficult to characterize. In this issue, Patel et al. (2022) describe new technologies for the computer-aided redesign of gene clusters to facilitate heterologous expression across diverse hosts and showcase their utility by identifying a new class of microbiome-derived nucleotide metabolites.
