Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Secondary metabolites play fundamental role in chemical ecology, and humanity have long learned to exploit their properties to fight diseases, produce dyes for painting and food colouring as well as essential ingredients for cosmetics, fragrances and food flavouring.  Despite the enormous economic importance of secondary metabolites to our society, there are still numerous secondary metabolites yet to be discovered and chemically characterised. In addition, our current knowledge on secondary metabolism and its regulation is still very limited. Therefore, this special issue of Metabolites will be dedicated for publishing current advances on the discovery and characterisation of novel secondary metabolites, elucidation of metabolic pathways for biosynthesis of secondary metabolites any other aspect of the secondary metabolism in different organisms.
