Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Smart Plant Breeding Revealed by NGS Tools, Omics Approaches, and AI Technology
The information on genetic diversity and population structure constitutes the key parameters for modern day’s plant breeders, conservationists, genome scientists and plant biologists. Advances in genomic technology, like NGS and bio-informatics platform, accelerate the genetic improvement of crop plant species. Fruit crops species contribute a significant amount of foods, fodders and essential human products. Consequently, the consumption demand increasing day by day, in order to meet the global demands of scientists, has initiated a huge number of research projects all over the world in the past several decades. A remarkable advancement is achieved in pomology research, including nationwide fruit germplasm (gene bank) center establishment, the characterization of wild and domesticated cultivars, digital genetic and genomic resources, application of marker technology, agronomic traits tagging, whole genome sequencing, etc. The recent advancements in fruit crop plants research creates opportunities and challenges for pomologists.
This Special Issue opens the door for the fruit crops research community to share their up-to-date progress, and inventions in the fields of genetic diversity, molecular breeding, population genetics, bio-informatics and conservation genetics. Original research articles and concepts for review articles to address major issues are welcome.

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.
