The primary goal is to enhance phycology research in Iran and provide more information about any aspects of phycology for researchers. 

The journal is a resource of Iranian research including bimonthly published article in this field. This journal stablished 3 years ago and try to publish original research papers.

Evaluation of in vitro Antioxidant Activities and Antibacterial Potentials of Two Brown Algae Extracts; Lyengaria stellata and Padina boergesenii Inhabiting the Persian Gulf, Iran

Pengcheng Fu; Maryam Akhoundian

Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2022, Pages 776-794

Abstract
  Abstract In-vitro antioxidant activities of semi-purified methanolic extract of Lyengaria stellata and Padina boergesenii were evaluated using DPPH radical-scavenging activity and reducing power. Total phenolic contents (TPC) and total flavonoid contents (TFC) were also investigated. The acetone fraction ...  Read More

Biosynthesis of Gold Nanoparticles by Medicinal Cyanobacterium Spirulina platensis Geitler
Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2022, Pages 795-807

Abstract
  AbstractThe biosynthesis of nanoparticles using microorganisms as emerging bionanotechnology has received considerable attention due to a growing need to develop environment-friendly technologies in materials synthesis. Nanoparticles produced by a biogenic enzymatic process are far superior in biomedical ...  Read More

Effect of Soil Physico-Chemical Characteristics on CyanobacterialCommunities in Arid Lands
Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2022, Pages 808-821

Abstract
  Cyanobacteria are a group of prokaryotes that can live under stressful environmental conditions due to their high metabolic flexibility. In this study, we examined the terrestrial cyanobacterial communities in the wheat fields adjacent to the industrial areas of Yazd province. The physical and chemical ...  Read More

Response of Antioxidant Enzymes to Colchicine and PhytohormonesTreatments in Dunaliella salina
Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2022, Pages 822-832

Abstract
  AbstractIn this experiment, we compared the antioxidative response and biomass production of three ploidy levels induced by three colchicine concentrations (0, 0.1, and 0.5%) and the effects of different concentrations of two phytohormones (auxin and gibberellin) on D. salina. The fresh and dry weight ...  Read More

Fatty Acids Composition of Marine Macroalgae (Review)

Jelveh Sohrabipour

Volume 3, Issue 2 , November 2019, , Pages 348-374

Abstract
  Fatty acids (FA) are important nutritional substances and metabolites in living organism. Degenerative diseases related to inappropriate FA consumption form a potential death cause for two thirds of the population living in affluent, industrialized nations. Marine algae represent a considerable part ...  Read More
