Natural products from micro-organisms, plants, animals and algae have been an excellent source of antimicrobial compounds. The production of antibiotics by micro-organisms has been recognized for a long time. Several groups have been isolated species which are able to produce new antimicrobial compounds or more productive strains. Many plants have been widely used in traditional medicine by local populations due to their supposed medicinal properties. In this region, people commonly treat diseases by means of drinking teas or infusions from plant extracts. These plants have been used for the treatment of sepsis, cancer, influenza, anemia, diphtheria, gastritis, bronchitis, anemia, chronic, headache, renal disorders, stress, pains and fatigue. This popular knowledge is traditional used to direct a lot of researches which resulted in the scientific evidence of these actions. In other hand, some plants that are not used in folk medicine are also targets of research. Currently, many researchers have been established the antimicrobial action of compounds from animals and algae.

This Frontiers Research Topic aims to illustrate the advances in the studies about bioprospection and structural characterization of antimicrobial compounds from Natural products. The insights on their action mechanism, drug interaction and new pharmaceutical formulations are also target of this topic. We encourage submissions of original research articles, reviews, min-reviews, methods article, hypothesis and theory articles, perspective, technology report, opinions and commentaries that make a substantial and updated contribution for scientific community.


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
