Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Genetic and molecular studies on plants have made it possible to secure useful genetic resources that can adapt to environmental stresses such as biotic stress and abiotic stress for a stable supply of human food resources and to identify their functions. To this end, many researchers have reported on environmental stress resistance mechanisms as well as major regulatory genes related to plant organ differentiation, growth and development, and metabolism. Thus, this Special Issue, entitled “Trends and Prospects of Genetic and Molecular Research in Plants, 2nd Edition,” aims to gather various biotechnology studies to overcome the limitations of crop productivity from the genome to the population level and maximize the factors and quantitative traits that correlate with the expression of key functional genes in crops. We welcome the submission of review and research papers or short communications on topics related to results and applications, focusing on genetic and breeding studies at the molecular level of plants.

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. Plants is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
