There is a crucial need for varieties resistant/tolerant to abiotic stresses to face the consequences of climate changes, such as heat waves, drought events, and the rise of saline cultivated land. Nowadays molecular tools are very useful to better understand the plant mechanism in reacting to the stresses and to speed up the process of selecting the better germplasm along the different steps of a breeding program from the germplasm characterization to variety registration. This Special Issue entitled “Molecular Breeding for Abiotic Stress Tolerance in Crops” would like to bring together the latest research which uses the new molecular approaches to improve crop varieties.
This Special Issue attempts to cover all issues relating to studies of plant response to abiotic stresses including physiology, biochemistry, cell biology and molecular biology aspects, as well as literature reviews of subjects related to this field. The paper could be addressed on the experimental, theoretical, and computational methodologies used in molecular breeding across the different plant species including crops and their wild relatives.
Potential topic includes:
- plant response to abiotic stresses
- plant breeding
- cell biology
- molecular biology

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.
