Special Issue "Bioactive Compounds from Cyanobacteria"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2020.
Cyanobacteria from terrestrial, freshwater, and marine environments are rich sources of bioactive compounds. The recent accumulation of genomic data of cyanobacteria has accelerated biosynthetic studies of their secondary metabolites. In addition, studies focusing on mechanisms of action have increased. Cytotoxins and enzyme inhibitors from cyanobacteria have been known for a long time and more detailed studies of these activities are increasing recently. The other type of activities including anti-protozoal and antifouling properties have been explored.
In this Special Issue, we will publish informative papers and reviews regarding all aspects of bioactive compounds from cyanobacteria. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, structure elucidation, total synthesis, biosynthesis, screening methods, mechanisms of action, analytical methods in relation to bioactive compounds from marine, freshwater, and terrestrial cyanobacteria.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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).
