About the Journal


Microbial Bioactives aspires to publish comprehensive articles on microbe derived and microbe oriented biologically active compounds to disseminate and convey relevant scientific knowledge and impactful discoveries to the scientists, academics, clinicians and industries. The objective of the journal is to establish an interactive platform facilitating the discovery and conversion of diverse bioactives into essential and valuable products like biopharmaceuticals, bio-agri-inputs, biocontrol agents, biocatalysts, health supplements etc. The journal encourages submitting full length articles presenting original research, reviews, data report, letters to the editor, short communications and technical/ methodological reports and it is very keen to expedite the progress by emphasizing on the novelty of research findings avoiding any reiteration.

The bioactive compounds oriented manuscripts either of microbial origin (e.g. proteins, lipoproteins, phospholipids, secondary metabolites, antimicrobial peptides, functional molecules in pre- and probiotics, bacteriocins, immunogenic molecules, enzymes, fengycin, molecules exerting anti-cancer, anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, immune regulatory and anti-oxidant activities, etc) ) or microbe directed oriented manuscripts focusing the following area are appreciated and welcomed.

Discovery of novel Bioactive compounds
Screening of potential microbes from different ecosystem
Bioactives from marine microbiota
