Horticultural plants play an important role for humans as a source of herbal medicines, beverages, vegetables, fruits, and ornamentals. High-throughput technologies have revolutionised the time scale and power of detecting physiological changes and thus achieving insights into the biological mechanisms functioning in plants. All manner of sequencing data and tools have helped us better understand the evolutionary histories of horticultural plants and provided genotype and phenotype resources for molecular studies on economically important traits. Integration of these omics technologies (e.g., genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, lipidomics, ionomics, and redoxomics) currently lies at the forefront of plant research. The genomes of horticultural plants are highly diverse and complex, often with a high degree of heterozygosity and polyploidy. Thus, novel computational methods must be developed to take advantage of state-of-the-art genomic technologies. As a result, the mining of multiomics data and the development of new computational biology approaches for the reliable and efficient analysis of plant traits is necessary. Multiomics and computational biology approaches allow understanding of the biochemical mechanisms involved in determining plant traits. The integration of multi-omics data and computational biology technologies allows construction of biological networks to identify traits that can be further applied towards horticultural crop breeding in developing more productive crop varieties.
This Research Topic aims to combine high-throughput omics and computational biology technologies in identifying coherently matching geno–pheno relationships or associations in horticultural crops research. We encourage manuscripts dedicated to improving our understanding of biological mechanisms, from the genotype to phenotype level.

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.
