The application of bioinformatics to plant research is providing new and powerful ways to understand the genetics of plants and their associated traits. Bioinformatics approaches are being used to identify genes associated with specific traits, to understand the function of genes, and to predict the effect of mutations. These approaches are providing new insights into plant development and physiology and facilitate the development of new and improved plant varieties.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a broad overview of the latest advances in the field of bioinformatics as they relate to plant genetic traits. This Special Issue will cover a wide range of topics, including the development of new workflows, algorithms and software tools for the analysis of plant genomes, the use of bioinformatics to identify and characterize plant genes associated with important traits, and the application of bioinformatics to plant breeding and crop improvement. We aim to bring together experts in this field to share their latest research and insights on these topics. It will be of interest to plant scientists, breeders, and anyone involved in the use of bioinformatics to study or improve plant genetic traits. The Special Issue will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in keeping up with the latest advances in this rapidly evolving field.

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.
