Ribosomal peptide natural products (RiPPs) offer a new frontier for discovering and engineering bioactive small molecules. In this issue of Chemistry & Biology, Young and colleagues overcome hurdles that have slowed the development of RiPPs, leading to in vivo synthesis of new thiopeptide antibiotics. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
