Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Throughout the life of a plant, temperature, water and salt stresses may recur over time and gradually affect its normal physiological activities. Due to abiotic and biotic stresses, the growth and development of horticultural plants such as fruit trees, vegetables, flowers, tea plants, become constrained. It is therefore imperative to understand the molecular mechanisms of plant response to different stresses and identify key candidate genes regulating tolerance. With advances in high-throughput sequencing technology, multiomics such as pan-genomics, transcriptomics and genome-wide non-coding RNAs have rapidly developed. Plant metabolomics is a set of nimble, analytical and chemometric tools and methods for plant functional genomics, phenotyping and systems biology. Genomics and metabolomics of horticultural plants are paving the way for a comprehensive and holistic understanding the growth, development, defense and productivity of horticultural plants.

This Special Issue aims to provide a platform for molecular mechanistic research on horticultural plants, with a special focus on genomics and metabolomes. We warmly welcome your submissions of original papers and reviews based on results from molecular viewpoints.

This Special Issue is supervised by Dr. Yuling Lin and assisted by our Topical Advisory Panel Member Dr. Shijiang Cao (College of Forestry, Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University, Fuzhou 350002, China).

Prof. Dr. Yuling Lin
Guest Editor

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.
