Due to the growing commercial demand for new and more efficient enzymes to implement and optimize industrial processes, many studies are now focusing their attention on new renewable and environmentally sustainable enzyme sources. This trend is also reflected in the increased number of publications in this area, especially in the use of marine microorganisms as sources of novel enzymes. With recent advances in omics technologies, there has been an increase in the amount of molecular data for in silico identification of enzymes and heterologous expression and successive production, shedding light on new enzymes of interest.
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect new and stimulating high-quality papers, including reviews and articles, directly related to various aspects of marine-derived enzymes and investigations into their possible applications.

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. Marine Drugs is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
