Special Issue "Marine Natural Products Discovery: In Honor of Late Prof. Tatsuo Higa"
A special issue of Marine Drugs (ISSN 1660-3397).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 16 August 2019
The late Prof. Tatsuo Higa devoted himself to the development of marine natural product chemistry for years (1970–2005). To commemorate his enthusiastic activities, we would like to open a space for his memory. As he focused mainly on the isolation of new bioactive molecules from marine organisms, we request researchers to contribute papers on isolation, biological activities and pharmacological mechanisms, structure–activity relationship, ecological aspects, biodiversity, synthesis, biosynthesis, and other relevant issues on marine natural products.
Prof. Dr. Junichi Tanaka
