Special Issue Information
In recent years, several advancements in functional genomic approaches and tools, especially related to genome editing, have been attained. These tools have been utilized or are being utilized for numerous purposes, including nutritional improvement and stress tolerance in several agricultural and horticultural crop species, including rice, wheat, potato, tomato, oil seed crops, bananas, etc. In this context, advancements in the use of functional genomics and genome engineering tools for crop biofortification for nutritional improvement, nutraceuticals improvement, flavonoid enrichment, yield improvement, disease resistance, virus resistance, abiotic stress tolerance, etc. should be covered in this field. Moreover, the applications of these tools in oil seed crops, vegetables, ornamental plants, etc., should also be included. Furthermore, their application in reducing post-harvest loss in various crops and the biosafety measures and regulatory mechanisms suggested by various regulatory authorities around the world along with their importance and shortcomings should also be discussed.
This Special Issue focuses on the application of advances in functional genomics approaches for the nutritional, quality, and yield improvements in various agricultural and horticultural crops. For this reason, it welcomes highly interdisciplinary quality studies from disparate research fields, including agriculture, horticulture, functional genomics, plant biotechnology, gene cloning, characterization, etc. Original research articles and reviews are accepted.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Agriculture is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs).
