Peptide antibiotics belong to the host defense molecules that are naturally produced by numerous (prokaryotic and eukaryotic) life forms, from venomous animals to microbes. As a result of their diversity and peculiar antibacterial potential, they are now clearly emerging as possible chemotherapeutic drugs against the various types/families of pathogenic bacteria, including those resistant to “classical” antibiotics. This Special Issue of Antibiotics focuses on the antibacterial peptides from microbes and venomous animals. It comprises the structural and functional characterizations of peptide antibiotics, from their early discovery to the advanced stage of clinical trials. Researchers and clinicians working with peptide antibiotics (and related compounds) are encouraged to submit their best manuscript(s) to this Special Issue, which deals with one of the most important fields of applied research.

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. Antibiotics 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.
