Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the last decades, valuable contributions to genetics and breeding were provided in several Solanaceae species. The dissection of complex agronomic traits and breeding methodologies is improving thanks to genomics approaches. In addition, the development of comparative genomic tools contributed to accelerating the discovery of related species. Therefore, relevant achievements obtained in those species, such as tomato, potato, pepper, and eggplant, are a result of interest in other Solanaceous. Moreover, the progresses made in new breeding techniques, such as gene editing can have great potential to precisely change a trait of interest in a well-designed breeding program. This Special Issue will focus on the advances in genetic, genomics and biotechnological approaches available for the genetic improvement of Solanaceae. Moreover, genetic studies for traits of interest and potential strategies to adapt crops to the impacts of climate change are also welcome.

Dr. Maria R. Ercolano
Guest Editor

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.
