In the last few decades, the pharmaceutical application of marine natural products has attracted much attention
from both organic and medicinal chemists. Recently, significant interest is focused on the isolation, identification, and
biological activities of compounds from the Red Sea organisms and many of these compounds show promising biological
activities, particularly cytotoxic and antimicrobial effects. This review covers the natural products and their biological activities
isolated from the Red Sea flora and fauna in the recent past years.
