    Special Issue on Research on Algae


    Algae are a very large and diverse group of simple, typically autotrophic organisms, ranging from unicellular to multicellular forms, such as the giant kelps that grow to 65 meters in length. Most are photosynthetic and "simple" because they lack the many distinct cell and organ types found in land plants. The largest and most complex marine forms are called seaweeds. Algae constitute a polyphyletic group since they do not include a common ancestor, although their plastids seem to have a single origin. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of Research on Algae.


    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore Research on Algae. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Phylogeny, biodiversity, molecular traits of algae
    • Metabolic regulation, and genetic engineering of algae
    • Phototrophic systems of algae
    • Algal harvesting and extraction systems
    • Distribution of algae
    • Algae cultivation
    • Algae biology


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue – Research on Algae” should be selected during your submission.
