Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Marine biotechnology is rapidly gaining recognition in providing the innovative drive for scientific solutions and products across a range of sectors including biomedical, agrichemical, aquaculture, and environmental industries.

The 3rd ANZMBS conference will be held at UNSW Sydney Australia on May 20–22nd 2019. This conference aims to (1) facilitate collaborations between scientists, technologists, investors, government, industry, and the community; (2) inform educators and policymakers; and (3) promote science, knowledge exchange, and technology development. Authors are invited to submit papers on a wide range of topics related to marine biotechnology including, for example, the following:

  • Natural products and drug discovery
  • Aquaculture and fisheries
  • Algal bioproducts and processes
  • Ecosystem monitoring (including coastal and open ocean)
  • Marine ecosystem engineering
  • Environmental remediation
  • Marine sustainability and restoration
  • MARINE biotechnology policy and consultation

Marine Drugs and JMSE are pleased to announce a joint Special Issue, hosting contributions from 2019 ANZMBS conference.

We will consider original research articles and novel reviews. Attendees are encouraged to read carefully the Aims and Scope of the two journals, webpages (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/marinedrugs/about and https://www.mdpi.com/journal/JMSE/about), to decide which journal is suitable for their submissions. Manuscripts will go through strict peer-review before publication. The submission deadline is 20 December 2019.
