Special Issue "Bioconversion of Marine Resources"
A special issue of Marine Drugs (ISSN 1660-3397).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2018
Marine-originated food is a unique source of nutrients. However, many parts of these marine bioresources, such as heads, bones, viscera, and shells, are discarded during processing despite the high levels of nutrients, and particularly micro-nutrients, found in these parts. Thus, the promotion of these unutilized marine bioresources using microbial technology, enzyme technology, or chemical modification to create high-quality food and bioactive materials could help reduce malnutrition. In this Special Issue, we focus on the reclamation of unutilized marine bioresources by biotechnology using microorganisms, enzymes, chemical procedures. With the opening of this Special Issue, “Bioconverion of Marine Bioresources”, we are planning to produce a strong, and very exciting issue that will encompass breakthroughs on highly valuable, scientific, and industrial research in this field.
For this Special Issue of Marine Drugs, we urge you to consider publishing your review paper or original research in the areas listed below:
- Microbial conversion of marine bioresources for the production of bioactive materials
- Enzymatic conversion of marine bioresources for the production of bioactive materials
- Chemical conversion of marine bioresources for the production of bioactive materials

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 papers will be 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 1800 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.
