Plant-microbe interaction is an exciting research area in the frontiers of life sciences, especially in the background of the microbiomics era. Answering how microbes, including viruses, bacteria and fungi, interact with host plants will not only reveal the molecular basis of the fascinating processes between various organisms but also stimulate the development of creative biotechnology, such as transgenic approaches, RNA interference and gene editing. In addition, plant-microbe interaction studies provide theory and materials for plant breeding to cultivate disease resistance germplasms, which efficiently ensures our food security. In recent years, Chinese scientists have represented an extremely active research community in this area.
The aim of this Special Issue is to call for papers with a focus on plant-microbe interaction research in China. Topics include, but are not limited to, genetic polymorphism and evolution, microbial pathogenesis, plant immunity, vector-borne plant disease and creative approaches to promoting plant disease resistance. In addition, manuscripts investigating the function of plant-associated microbiomes are especially welcomed.
We invite you to submit research articles, review articles and short communications related to state-of-the-art plant-microbe interaction research in China.

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. Microorganisms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
