The biosynthesis of gene clusters represents the genetic orchestration behind the synthesis of diverse compounds, often with profound biological activities. They are typically found within the genomes of microorganisms, plants, and even some animals. These clusters harbor a set of genes, each encoding specific enzymes and regulatory elements essential for the biosynthesis of a particular compound.
