Interests: plant virus; plant virus genome; plant genome; plant virus RNA translation; plant virus evolution
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Genome studies are a fast-developing field of molecular plant virology, focusing on the structure of virus RNAs and DNAs, function of encoded genes, and their evolution and mapping. Recent achievements in omics technologies and bioinformatics tools have substantially increased the ability of researchers to analyze and understand genomes and to use these knowledges in biotechnology as well as plant breeding. The purpose of this Special Issue is to report recent progress in genomic studies in plant viruses. This includes but is not limited to genome sequencing, genome structure and organization, infectious virus genome assembly, gene prediction, comparative genomics and transcriptomics, genome and protein evolution, gene editing, expression profiling, the functions of specific genes, and protein–protein interactions between virus polypeptides as well as between viral and host products. Bioinformatics tools and databases assisting genomic and transcriptomic data analyses are also welcomed.

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.
