Microalgae are widely used in various biotechnological industries including food, nutraceutical, biomedical, agriculture, and environmental processes. To promote the application of microalgae in these areas, better knowledge of their characteristics, and technological advancements in cultivation and downstream processing, are needed. Furthermore, new possibilities for biotechnological applications should be explored. This Special Issue is seeking high-quality research articles and reviews to discuss recent achievements in the biotechnology applications of microalgae for bioactive compound and bio-product production, or their other potentials in pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, or biomedical industries. As the Guest Editor, it's my pleasure to invite researchers in this field to contribute their latest research advances to this Special Issue.
