Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Plant Genomics and Bioinformatics
We are pleased to announce a Special Issue on ‘Advances in the Identification and Characterization of Plant Genes’ that will be published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences. This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest research in the field of plant gene identification and characterization.
Plant genomes are incredibly complex, and identifying and characterizing individual genes within them is a significant challenge. However, advances in sequencing technologies and bioinformatics tools have made it possible to overcome many of these challenges and enhance our understanding of plant genomics.
This Special Issue will address a wide range of topics related to plant gene identification and characterization, including genome sequencing and annotation, transcriptomics, proteomics, and functional analysis. We welcome original research articles, reviews, and perspectives that address these topics and provide new insights into the molecular mechanisms that underlie plant growth, development, and responses to biotic and abiotic stress.
We encourage submissions from researchers across the globe who are currently employed in plant genomics and welcome contributions that reflect both fundamental and applied research. Our aim is to assemble cutting-edge research that will promote advancements in our understanding of plant gene regulation and pave the way for the development of new and improved crops.
We look forward to receiving your submissions and to sharing this exciting collection of research with our readers.
Dr. Frank M. You
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.
