Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues

The search for bioactive secondary metabolites from marine organisms continues to be an active area of research in the drug discovery area. There is an ever demanding need to employ various chemical profiling strategies to accelerate the process of new compound discovery. This special issue of Marine Drugs will highlight advances in extraction, isolation, purification and dereplication methodologies which can expedite the search for bioactive marine natural products.
