Special Issue Information
The agricultural microbiome plays an important role in the nutrient absorption, disease resistance and stress resistance of crops, and it is the most important way to achieve sustainable agriculture. The purpose of this Special Issue is to promote the development of the field of agricultural microbiome; the scope of acceptance is for microbiome research related to agriculture, including crops, cash crops, oil crops, vegetables, fruits, agricultural products, animal husbandry and aquatic products. Research on amplicon sequencing is acceptable, and works on metagenome, metatranscriptome, metaproteome, metametabolome, bacterial genome, population association analysis, and multi-omics analysis are recommended, in order to more comprehensively use the meta-omics technology to analyze the role of the microbiome in agriculture, make the world a better place, and realize the harmonious development of science, technology and agriculture.
