Interests: breeding technology development and exploration of secondary mechanism in tea plants
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
With the publication of high-quality reference sequences of tea plants and re-sequencing data from different tea accessions, advances in tea plant research have been developed, from secondary metabolism to genetic mechanism exploration, the identification of certain bioactive compounds, and novel genes related to key traits, all of which have largely extended our understanding of tea genetics and breeding. Among them, phenotypic changes including flavonoids, amino acids, caffeine, appearance, and responses to environmental factors in special tea varieties have attracted the attention of both customers and scientists. These changing phenotypes are closely associated with key genes which are largely unknown. Exploring these genes and understanding their underlying mechanisms will improve tea breeding in the future.
This Special Issue of “International Journal of Molecular Sciences” will highlight the exploration of new genes and their potential molecular mechanisms, such as changes in tea quality, fertility, and agronomy traits, as well as stress responses. Research papers related to tea propagation and new technologies in tea breeding, in addition to relative review papers, 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. 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.
