Special Issue "Functional Genomics of Energy Crops"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 December 2023 | Viewed by 14109
As is well-known, biomass energy has always crucial to human survival, and it is likely to play an integral part of future sustainable energy systems. However, the bottleneck of the biomass resources will seriously restrict the development of the biomass energy industry. Therefore, this Special Issue, “Functional Genomics of Energy Crops”, aims to stimulate comprehensive research on energy crops.
Articles presenting the latest findings on biomass metabolism, high light efficiency, high biomass, functional genomics, breeding, biomass conversion, and stress resistance of energy crops will be considered.
This Special Issue will present both basic science and applied research to construct a more cohesive comprehension of energy crop science, considering all the aspects of this complex puzzle.

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.
