Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the call for papers for this Special Issue of Toxins, a result of the “2nd International Electronic Conference on Toxins (IECT2023)”. The online conference this year was again a tremendous success for the scientific community. The recognition of this accomplishment will be highlighted by this Special Issue. 

Topics for the IECT2023 were organized into six sessions:

S1. Novel plant, animal, insect and microbial toxins;
S2. Mechanism of action and/or pathophysiology of toxins;
S3. Use of toxins as tools for research, drug discovery and therapeutics;
S4. Impact of toxins on public health;
S5. Impact of toxins on agriculture;
S6. Evolution of toxins.

Manuscripts within those topics of interest will be considered for publication, following peer review, for publication in this Special Issue.

I hope that you will consider submitting a manuscript for this Special Issue to commemorate the event.

Prof. Dr. Jay Fox
Guest Editor
