Special Issue in Marine Drugs: Diversity of Marine Fungi as a Source of Bioactive Natural Products 2nd Edition
Bioactive metabolites from marine-derived fungi are known to be an important source for drug discovery. Natural product scientists have explored various environments, such as deep ocean, polar regions, as well as marine mangrove ecosystems, to discover unique fungi strains which have the ability to produce new bioactive structures.
The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight the diversity of fungi derived from different marine environments as well as their potential as producers of bioactive marine natural products. Innovative scientific results as well as approaches and methodologies applied in marine natural product discovery areas are encouraged. Studies on the biosynthesis and bioactivities of marine natural products are also welcome.
For this Special Issue, we invite academic and industry scientists to submit reviews and original and conceptual research articles highlighting diversified marine fungi as a source of bioactive natural products.
