Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Maize (Zea mays L.) is one of the main staple crops, and has the highest grain yield per unit area in the world. However, during the growth and development of maize, it often suffers from biotic and abiotic stress, which affects the yield and quality of maize and seriously affects food security. This Special Issue mainly focuses on the biological basis for the formation of important traits of maize and the mechanism of environmental adaptability, the mining of maize stress resistance genes and their function identification, etc., in order to provide basic scientific support for the analysis of maize stress resistance mechanisms and genetic improvement, and to help the breeding of excellent maize varieties. Original research articles about these topics will be accepted.

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.
