The diversity of marine organisms from coastal areas to the deep sea represents a source of new bioactive molecules. With new technologies and new approaches developed in omics and especially in proteomics, the characterization of new proteins or peptides is booming. These new proteins or peptides present in marine organisms play a role in the structure and/or function of these organisms but may represent a new source of drugs. Thus, it is possible from marine species—including venomous species not studied at all or studied little—to discover new antimicrobial peptides, new toxins that could constitute new antibiotics, analgesics, and anesthetics for human or animal health. Among peptides, neuropeptides also play an essential role in major physiological functions such as reproduction and nutrition and also constitute a source of drugs very often unexplored.
I invite researchers from different disciplines including biology, physiology, chemistry, biochemistry, medical science, and other fields to consider making a contribution to this Special Issue on “Marine Proteomics in Exploring Bioactive Peptides and Proteins” and to highlight the contributions of proteomics to unconventional marine models.

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. Marine Drugs 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 2900 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.
