Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The ocean provides diverse bioactive compounds such as proteins, peptides, saccharides, and lipids, which are synthesized and processed by enzymes within marine organisms. Marine bioactive compounds have been used to benefit people's lives and health, and in recent years, their applications in functional foods and medicines have attracted much attention.

The Special Issue “Marine Proteins and Enzymes: Bioactivities and Medicinal Applications” focuses on the biosynthesis and bioprocessing of proteins, peptides, oligosaccharides, and lipids from marine organisms to convert them into high-value products using enzymes for applications in functional foods, medicine, and industrial products.

We extend an invitation to you to submit your original research papers and review papers to the Special Issue “Marine Proteins and Enzymes: Bioactivities and Medicinal Applications”. We welcome research on the bioprocessing of marine bioactive compounds from the perspectives of biochemistry, biotechnology, enzymology, and microbiology.

Prof. Dr. Min-Jie Cao

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Marine Drugs is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
