Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Crop production is affected by biotic and abiotic stresses, such as drought, salinity, flooding, low or high temperatures, and pest and disease attacks. Therefore, QTL/gene clone and functional analyses for these major traits are very important to the development of stress-resilient and high-yield crops. Recent advances in functional genomics in crops will accelerate the breeding and genetic improvement of crops for biotic and abiotic stresses and yield-related traits.
For this Special Issue, we welcome novel research related to QTL/gene clones, especially for biotic and abiotic stresses, molecular marker development, marker-assisted selection, genome editing, genetic transformation, and their advancement and application in crop improvement. We also welcome reviews on recent molecular and biotechnological advances and their potential applications in the genetic improvement of corn.

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.
