Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The health sector has a high potential to meet the demands of society, and is a significant portion of the economy, where the mastery of modern biotechnology is directly related to improving the quality of life for society. Several biotechnological techniques are used for the bioprospection of different molecules/substances from renewable or biological materials. Therefore, products made with some component of renewable or biological materials are considered bioproducts. These may have different animal, vegetable, or microbial origins, making it necessary to prospect for different compounds or components with biotechnological potential from these different sources with great innovative potential. However, with different purposes, being one of these substances that act as antimicrobial agents. As the Guest Editor of this Special Edition, I invite you to submit research articles, review articles, and short communications related to biological products from different sources that have biotechnological potential as antimicrobial agents against different microorganisms that cause pathologies in humans and animals.

Dr. Keila Aparecida Moreira
