Maize is the largest crop in the world. Significant heterosis, wide adaptability, efficient photosynthesis, and characteristics apt to planting are its charm. Extensive genetic germplasm and a large number of new artificial mutagenic materials as abundant gene resources could be provided for maize breeding. A large number of new technologies and novel methods have been applied to maize genetic research and breeding.
Various studies on maize genetics and breeding are welcome to this Special Issue, including but not limited to classic quantitative genetics, genomics, proteomics, and new technologies such as big data, artificial intelligence, gene editing, and synthetic biology. The research goals of the manuscripts could be general biological, physiological, and genetic phenomena or breeding resistance to biotic and abiotic stress. Manuscripts can be original research or reviews. We believe your contribution will have a significant influence on future maize genetic research and breeding.

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.
