The term “Far East” implies a huge geographical region that consists of Eastern Russia, and Eastern and Southeastern Asia, and includes the waters of two oceans—the Pacific and Indian. Over 20 countries are considered to be part of this region, many of which have access to the sea, and therefore are actively involved in the research of the marine inhabitants and its metabolites. Compounds isolated from Far Eastern organisms are a significant and very important part of the whole pool of marine-derived substances—both new and previously known—bearing a unique chemical structure as well as an impressive spectrum of promising biological activities.
The Special Issue “Marine Compounds from the Far Eastern Organisms” of Marine Drugs will cover the whole scope of the molecules, both novel and previously characterized, isolated from the marine organisms inhabiting the Far Eastern region. This Special Issue is focused on the structure elucidation, chemistry, and diversity, as well as the various biological activities of these compounds. We are looking forward to interesting manuscripts related to this exciting topic!
