Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, with the rapid development of interdisciplinary disciplines such as molecular biology, omics, and systems biology, as well as the continuous breakthroughs in genome sequencing technologies, molecular markers have gradually become one of the important technological approaches in current fruit breeding and genome analysis. Molecular markers can not only analyze fruit tree traits but also accelerate the breeding process of fruit trees. Therefore, a deeper understanding of how to develop molecular markers in fruit breeding and genome analysis and apply these markers to fruit tree breeding production is of crucial importance.

This Special Issue focuses on the development and assessment of molecular markers through genome analysis and their application in fruit tree breeding. This Special Issue on molecular markers in fruit breeding and genome analysis will include interdisciplinary studies combining agriculture with disciplines of molecular biology and bioinformatics. Research articles will cover a broad range of molecular markers for fruit breeding. All types of articles, such as original research, Opinion, and Review are welcome.

Dr. Hongcheng Fang

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 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
