Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Starting from the end of the decade 1980-1990, with increasing advances of analytical techniques, the field of glycobiology has grown welldefined and the roles of complex molecules such as saccharides, glycoproteins, glycan, glycolipids and proteoglycans (all defined as glycoconjugates) were identified in a wide range of fundamental biological processes. In marine research these studies have had just selective flourishing in a small number of classical processes (reproduction, chemical communications, bioadhesion). It seems to be convenient to edit a special issue of Marine Drugs dedicated to Marine Glycoconjugates in the hope of gathering articles from different areas such as structural characterization, synthesis and biobased synthesis of marine glycoconjugates, comprehension of glyco-based molecular events in cell-cell and cell-substrate bioprocesses. All these studies, being founded on molecular collective identities of carbohydrates in marine organisms, will certainly add day by day more significance to the current -omics revolution toward a marine glycocode, the comprehension of which will have tremendous impact in biomedical and biotechnological applications of glycoconjugates like in terrestrial counterparts. As the Guest Editor I invite researchers from industry and academia to describe recent advances in the field of marine glycoconjugates.
