Special Issue "Molecular Mechanism of Mineral Nutrient Transport and Regulation in Crops"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 October 2023 | Viewed by 1346
Mineral nutrition is important for plant sustainable growth and yield. Crop production on more than half of the world’s soil is mineral nutrient limited, therefore, high efficient uptake and transport system for essential elements is critical for the formation of crop production and quality of the products. This Special Issue, entitled Molecular mechanism of mineral nutrient transport and regulation in crops, invites researchers to contribute original research or updated review articles that are focused on the mineral nutrient transport and regulation in crop plants. The scope of the Special Issue is not limited to the transport and regulation of the essential elements such as P and Fe, studies concerning transport of beneficial elements (Si, Na) and toxic elements (Cd, As) in crops are also welcome. Since IJMS is a journal of molecular science, pure field and physiological studies are not suitable for our journal. However, field and physiological study submissions with biomolecular experiments are welcome.
