Special Issue "Natural Products and Their Derivatives with Antibacterial, Antioxidant and Anticancer Activities"
A special issue of Antibiotics (ISSN 2079-6382).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 July 2020).
Natural products and their derivatives have been playing an important role in health as well as in economy. These compounds are significantly contributing to discovery of new drugs and therapeutic agents. To facilitate studies on their health benefits, it is crucial to obtain these compounds at their highest purity, to be able to characterize, and then to scale up them for commercial production. This Special Issue will, therefore, highlight recent advances in production of natural products and their derivatives with antibacterial, antioxidant and anticancer properties. In particular, the issue aims to provide the audience with original research articles and reviews on:
(1) Strategies to extract and identify medical compounds from forest and marine sources
(2) Enzymatic, cultural or synthetic biology technology for production of those compounds and their derivatives
