Endophytic microbes dwell in the interior of plants during some period of their life cycles thus establishing mutualistic as well as symbiotic relationships. These microbiomes from uncommon bioresources and unexplored ecological niches have been regarded as promising tools for the search of new leads. Endophytic fungal communities have been receiving more attention from microbiologists due to their huge biodiversity and largely unexploited metabolic resources. Secondary metabolites from endophytic fungi have a great potential as antimicrobial, anti cancer, antitumor, ant parasitic and ant diabetic agents. Further, the color and enzyme producing endophytes have application different industries. Thus, fungal endophytes in recent years have emerged as a promising alternate bioresources of secondary metabolites for sustainable development.

Key words: Bioactive compounds, Endophytic fungi, Enzymes, Pigments, Sustainability
