Pharmaceuticals has initiated a collection on antimicrobial peptides (AMPs). The main theme is “Identification and Characterization of Antimicrobial Peptides with Therapeutic Potential”. During 2013-2014, the journal published several articles that discuss AMPs from amphibians, birds, insects, fish, reptiles, humans, fungi (under review), and plants (ongoing). We thank authors for their contributions. The journal would like to continue this interesting topic and you are encouraged to submit review articles, original articles, and communications on AMPs. Review articles that summarize AMPs from other life domains (bacteria, protozoa, mollusca, worms, spiders, and so on) are especially welcome. In addition, original articles that report novel AMPs (natural or engineered) are also invited.
