This Special Issue is a continuation of the previous Special Issue “Advances in Ginsenosides”.
Ginsenosides, also known as ginseng saponins or triterpene saponins, are the foremost bioactive constituents of ginseng, which belongs to the genus Panax. The genus name Panax means “all-curing” in Greek, and Panax ginseng C. A. Meyer has been used as a top-grade herb in traditional Chinese medicine and the king of tonic herbs for over 2000 years in oriental countries. Ginseng preparations have a wide range of benefits for human health, including enhancing immune function, improving circulation and vascular function, preventing neurological diseases, modulating metabolism, and improving vitality and health. Ginsenosides are unique to ginseng species, more than 100 ginsenosides have been identified. Ginsenosides have a variety of biological activities, such as neuroprotection, antioxidation, anticancer, antistress, anti-inflammatory, antiaging, antifatigue, cytotoxicity, inhibiting cell apoptosis, and inhibiting platelet aggregation. Recent studies on the therapeutic potential of ginsenosides have revealed the molecular mechanisms of action against cardiovascular diseases, immune-system diseases, and nervous system diseases, as well as their anti-inflammatory activity and modulation of the endocrine system. In brief, ginsenosides possess complicated bioactive effects and regulate multiple metabolic pathways; therefore, their efficacy is interconnected and difficult to clarify.
This Special Issue aims to integrate recent innovative approaches and attempts to make significant progress in the biochemistry of ginsenosides by expanding knowledge on a wide range of topics, including biotechnology, biosynthetic machinery, pharmacological studies, and the application of high-throughput technologies such as genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and bioinformatics and other related topics. I sincerely invite scientists to contribute both original research articles and reviews on this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biomolecules is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
