Despite an increase in life expectancy over the past 20 years, the number of novel, multi-drug resistant microorganisms has also risen dramatically. To reduce the risk of reemerging infections, and limit the spread of multidrug resistant microorganisms, it is urgently necessary to develop safe and effective therapeutic countermeasures. New antimicrobial chemicals are mostly produced with the help of microorganisms, and the bulk of medications now on the market are of this type. The use of high therapeutic screening and recent developments in analytical instrumentation has allowed the researchers to identify novel antimicrobial compounds from bacteria, fungi, plants, mushrooms, algae, and other sources more quickly.

The second volume of Frontiers in Antimicrobial Agents highlights the ongoing requirement for researching and creating novel antimicrobial medications. Current Trends in the Identification and Development of Antimicrobial Agents aims to bring together the expertise of notable academics to examine all facets of antimicrobial research while keeping recent advancements in perspective. Antibiotic discovery, sources of novel antimicrobial chemicals, developing and reemerging microbial infections, various elements of drug resistance, and the need for antimicrobial medications in the future are all covered in this book. It is a timely reference for anyone involved in the discovery and development of new drugs, including microbiologists, biotechnologists, pharmacologists, doctors, and researchers.

Thank you very much for your insightful comments and recommendations. Sure, those suggestions will be included in the future edition.

M. Amin-ul Mannan and Gaurav Kumar have done a wonderful job in compiling the book entitled Frontiers in Antimicrobial Agents Vol. 2, Current Trends in Identification and Development of Antimicrobial Agents. All chapters in the book are written by well-experienced researchers; however, keeping the convenience of readers in mind, simple language is used throughout the book. The book is also well supported with diagrams, photographs, tables, etc., to make the content lucid and interesting.

I hope that this book will help the readers to update and upgrade their knowledge and skills in the field of anti-microbial drug discovery and development.

Further, I appreciate the editors, Dr. Mannan and Dr. Kumar, for taking the initiative to compile recent developments in the field of a very important global problem. Further, I also wish all the best to the contributors. I hope that this book will make its contribution to the field of anti-microbial drug discovery and development.
