In recent decades, the holobiome of porifera has been revealed as an outstanding source of bioactive compounds that can lead to new drug candidates and/or inspire the development of new scaffolds. The term holobiome is used here to highlight the fact that natural products from porifera often result from the biosynthetic machinery of their symbiotic system. The extraordinary chemical diversity of metabolites produced by sponges and their symbionts translates in an enormous variety of biological activities.
This Special Issue "Bioactive Compounds from Marine Sponges 2019" welcomes contributions focused on the discovery of new sponge-derived bioactive natural products, the elucidation of their structures and synthetic/biosynthetic routes as well as their potential pharmacological applications.
We aim to highlight progress and advance understanding in this field and to gain deeper comprehension of the symbiotic relationships between sponges and symbiotic microorganisms.
As Guest Editors, we invite you to submit relevant contributions to this Special Issue of Marine Drugs.

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 papers will be 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 2000 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.
