SAT chromosome

Ethnopharmacology is the cross-cultural study of how people derive medicines from plants, animals, fungi, or other naturally occurring resources. Up to now, the field has focused mostly on developing drugs based on the medicinal use of plants by indigenous people. some drug companies have teamed up with botanists, anthropologists, biochemists, conservation organizations, and governments of less-developed countries to protect biologically diverse areas and search for new drugs. This has led to accusations of "bio-piracy," in which, it is argued, western interests loot indigenous knowledge for fame and/or profit. .

The AIDS virus, the crisis of bacterial resistance to antibiotics, and other recent developments have increased the value of indigenous medicinal plant knowledge, which may hold clues for solving these deadly problems. Indigenous medicinal plant knowledge is also critical because synthetic chemical processes have proved inadequate for dealing with the rapid evolution of pathogens.
In addition, plant species are disappearing, and many indigenous people have stopped transmitting traditional medicinal knowledge to their children.
