A wide variety of ornamental plants beautify people's living environment, and also have high commercial value. This has attracted a large number of breeders to invest considerable resources in acquiring new varieties. On the one hand, conventional breeding still plays an important role. But on the other hand, as more and more ornamental plant genomes ware assembled, we need to develop new biotechnologies to promote flower breeding, such as genetic transformation, genome editing, etc. Based on these, we launch this special issue “Research Advances in Ornamental Plants Breeding and Biotechnology”. This Special Issue welcomes contributions from researchers working in the field of Ornamental Plants Breeding and/or Biotechnology. Original research articles and reviews will be encouraged to submit including but not limited to the following areas:
- Biotic or abiotic stress resistant gene function of ornamental plants
- Delivery of genetic material
- Genome editing research and application in ornamental plants
- Integrative analysis of multi-omics
- Molecular regulatory mechanism of ornamental traits
- Ornamental plants germplasm
- Ornamental plants genetics.

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.
