Bread is an integral food source for people all over the world, and ensuring food security and successful agricultural production is a major issue related to economic development and social stability. With the increasing global population, climate warming, environmental pollution, and farmland degradation, global food production must increase by 70% by 2050 to ensure food supply. Germplasm resources are the "chips" that ensure the security of food production. However, their key problem concerns excavating and innovating gene and germplasm resources and breaking through the limitations of conventional breeding by using biological frontier technology for accurate and efficient breeding. In view of the urgent problems regarding yield and quality, the large-scale cracking of genetic code, exploring functional genes with important breeding value, and the in-depth analyses of their molecular regulatory networks are of great significance for breeding new varieties for the rapid aggregation of excellent alleles.

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.
