  • Introduction

    The aim of this special issue titled “Recent Development in Health Care through Plants and Microbes” is to enhance health care by giving an opportunity to researchers to showcase their experiences and results that portray various approaches and techniques applied. This special issue seeks to publish papers aimed at addressing significant issues related to Health Care, its various implications and problems, contributing towards addition of new concepts, trends and knowledge to Science.

    This issue will contain state-of-the-art reviews and original research articles covering outstanding and most recent research in the field of plant sciences and microbiology. Use of plants and microorganisms for health care is gaining momentum at this movement. The contributions of plants and microbes in health care has helped in achieving better outcomes, reduced side effects, reducing the costs and the risk of treatments for improved quality of life. The scope of this issue extends to the use of plants and microorganisms to prevent the diseases both at the individual and population levels. This issue intends to publish papers dealing with all aspects of agriculture, medicinal plants and microorganisms.

    This call invites both theoretical and empirical studies on the following topics that are specific but are not limited to:
    1. Medicinal plants
    2. Plant extracts for health care
    3. Microbial products for health care
    4. Biochemical studies
    5. Identification (biochemical and molecular methods) and characterization
    6. Contribution to human health
    7. Biosynthesis of nanoparticles
    8. Pharma plants
    9. GMO’s and future health
    10. Edible vaccines
    11. Genetically modified microbes and health
    12. Plants and nutraceuticals
