Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Omics technologies have taken on great relevance since sequencing platforms and other high-throughput technologies that generate massive information have become available to many researchers around the world, thus obtaining complete data on biological samples that allow them, with the support of the bioinformatics tools and the large databases currently published, to obtain information that contributes to systems biology, and with it, to understand the physiology of organisms. Plants, being sessile organisms, have to adapt to environmental conditions to survive and reproduce, and to do so they need to modify their physiology. By understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms that contribute to these changes, these physiological traits can be predicted in order to contribute to better agronomic management and genetic improvement.

This Special Issue plants give an overview of the most recent advances in the field of the multi-omics sciences that contribute to understanding the physiological traits of plants under abiotic stress. The purpose is to select scientific research on recent omics approaches that have contributed to deciphering the complex molecular networks that plants activate in order to establish themselves, to survive and reproduce, and that also translate into better crop yields.

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.
