Special Issue "Functional Genomics and Molecular Breeding of Soybeans"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 February 2024 | Viewed by 2294
Interests: soybean molecualr biology; soybean molecular genetics and breeding for yield and quality
Interests: soybean molecualr biology; genetic improvement of soybean growth period
Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) is one of the most important grain and oil crops. With the extensive exploitation of soybean gene resources, research on soybean functional genomics using genomic information and phenotypic group information has become increasingly important. With the continuous development of biotechnology, modern breeding techniques, such as whole genome selection breeding and genome editing breeding, are changing rapidly, and the selection of excellent soybean varieties has shifted towards soybean molecular design breeding. This Special Issue will collect cutting-edge research on soybean functional genomics and molecular breeding to further promote soybean molecular design and breeding.

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. Agronomy 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.
