Coronaviruses are a large group of enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome and a nucleocapsid of helical symmetry. This group includes various human respiratory diseases: some common colds, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and the recently appeared COVID-19. Marine Drugs, as the leading journal in reporting marine natural products and their biological/pharmacological/therapeutical applications, would like to provide a publication platform on this topic. Thus, scientists in the marine field are invited to present original and advanced research outcomes about marine natural products with potential efficacy against coronavirus. We welcome both research articles and comprehensive reviews.
Prof. Orazio Taglialatela-Scafati
