Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bioactive molecules have propelled biomedical research into a new era of innovation. These compounds, found in diverse sources such as plants, marine life and microorganisms, exhibit potent biological activities with implications for medicine and drug development. Breakthroughs in analytical techniques, such as high-throughput screening and advanced imaging, enable the precise characterization of bioactive molecules, facilitating targeted drug design. The synergy of bioinformatics and computational biology expedites the identification of promising molecules, streamlining the drug discovery process. Moreover, chemistry empowers the engineering of microorganisms or plants for an enhanced production of bioactive compounds, fostering sustainable and tailored approaches to a variety of therapies. As our understanding deepens and technologies evolve, the exploration of bioactive molecules continues to reshape healthcare, offering promising solutions for diverse medical challenges.

In this Special Issue, original studies on all aspects related to the advancements in bioactive agents are welcome, in particular for therapeutic and pharmaceutical uses. It will also cover reports providing new insights into the molecular basis of such bioactive compounds or new engineered sources.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
