Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bioactive compounds derived from algae still comprise an important and active area of research in the field of drug discovery. This Special Issue of Marine Drugs invites scholars to submit research into algae and aims to highlight new isolation and structural elucidation approaches, and developments in drug discovery, synthesis and medicinal chemistry, structural methods, chemical biology and biotechnology, and genomic tools. Additionally, we will publish studies on metabolomics and bioassay-guided and chemical profilin methodologies to expedite discoveries and advance potential therapeutics. This Special Issue invites reviews and original contributions in any of these areas.

Prof. Sylvia Urban
Guest Editor
