The field of plant population genomics is rapidly evolving in terms of its conceptual framework, its methodologies, and its applications, mostly due to advances in the sequencing technologies and computing capacity. For instance, the conceptual framework and practical tools have shifted from classical quantitative genetics and QTL genetic mapping to latest-generation GWAS models, genomic prediction, machine learning forecasting, and the omnigenic model. Similarly, this base knowledge has led to ecological genomic applications transcending the fields of speciation and adaptation into the frameworks of genomic islands of divergence, conservation genomics, genetic-assisted gene flow, and genomics for restoration. Plant breeding has also been boosted by developments in the population genomics field by shifting from Mendelian marker-assisted selection and marker-assisted backcrossing into genomic-enabled prediction, genomic-assisted introgression breeding, and enviromics. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to summarize, discuss, and recommend historical and modern developments that will continue enabling plant population genomics, its foundations, methodologies, and uses.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
