Scientists are able to precisely edit genomes efficiently and cost-effectively thanks to the many high-quality reference genome sequences that are currently available. Zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs), transcription activator-like effector-based nucleases (TALENs), and the clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)-Cas system have been successfully employed to edit numerous individual genes in many organisms, and CRISPR-edited plants are now on the market. The CRISPR-Cas system has been widely used to edit genetic elements in genomes for various applications—not only crop improvement, but also many gene therapy studies. In this Special Issue, we cordially invite scientists from across the world to contribute their cutting-edge research on plant genomics and genome editing. We welcome the submission of original research articles and short communications contributing to the advancement of genomics and genome editing, including techniques, applications, trait development, and enabling database and computational software. We are also inviting scientists to write reviews for this Special Issue.

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.
