Special Issue in Plants: Mining of Stress-Resistance Gene in Wheat
As one of the most successful crops since the dawn of agriculture, wheat accounts for more than 20% of total global calorie and protein consumption. With the huge challenges posed by population expansion and climate change, wheat production must be sustainably increased to ensure global food security. The genomes and pan-genomes for wheat have recently been released, and are thus available for application to its progenitors, providing a new platform for the exploitation of gene resources and genome-associated crop improvement. Developing a better understanding of the mechanism underlying its adaptability, yield, and quality is of great significance for promoting improvements in wheat genetics and molecular breeding. This Special Issue of IJMS, entitled “Wheat Genetics and Genomics”, will include papers containing new research data and timely review articles that focus on the study of wheat genomics; these will include, but are not limited to, the exploration of genome variation (pan-genome, re-sequencing, etc.) and the mining of key functional genes (via QTL mapping, genome-wide association studies, transcriptome-wide association studies, etc.), as well as multiomics studies (RNA-seq, sRNA, proteome, metabolome, phenomics, etc.). We welcome novel research and reviews that cover any of the related topics.
This special issue is supervised by Dr. Xiaojun Nie, assisted by our Topical Advisory Panel Member Dr. Hongxing Ma（Yangzhou University).

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.
