Nature is a generous source of compounds with the potential to treat diseases, including infectious diseases, which is of utmost importance for modern medicine as antimicrobial resistances increase. Known sources of natural compounds with valuable antimicrobial activity include medicinal plants, and marine and terrestrial organisms such as fungi and bacteria. Nevertheless, there is still a vast fauna and flora that, once systematically explored, could provide additional antimicrobial leads and drugs.

Investigators are welcome to contribute original research and/or review articles in this area, specifically with studies exploiting the mechanism of action and the structure-activity aspects of natural compounds with antimicrobial activity that provide insights into potential ways to overcome antimicrobial resistance.


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.
