The discovery of antimicrobial agents is a major research focus of marine natural products chemistry. The increasing prevalence of drug-resistant pathogens is a global threat to public health, resulting in a high demand for new antimicrobials agents. Recently, multidisciplinary research related to natural products has resulted in new application possibilities of antimicrobial agents in a great number of fields, such as agriculture, food industry, and manufacturing, in addition to new drug development.
This Special Issue aims to integrate original research articles on the discovery of new antimicrobial natural products derived from marine organisms and the new antimicrobial potential of previously reported marine natural products, as well as various applications of marine derived antimicrobial agents in drug development, medical manufacturing, and other fields.Prof. Dr. Hyukjae Choi
