Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) is a widely cultivated crop of global economic and ecological significance due to its high dietary oil and protein content as well as its ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen into biologically available forms. With these characteristics, soybean plays important roles in sustainable agriculture and plant-based diets. Soybean has been domesticated for thousands of years to satisfy our demand. However, further improvement of soybean production is stymied by the lack of thorough understanding of the soybean genome. With the advance in high-throughput sequencing technologies, dozens of soybean reference genomes and tons of soybean sequence data have been released. Diving into these data creates new knowledge, potentially beneficial to soybean breeding and improvement. Furthermore, genome information is also laying a foundation for precision genome editing, bringing a new era of soybean molecular breeding. This Special Issue of Plants will highlight genomic research of soybean, the dissection of the genomic basis of important soybean traits, and gene–gene and gene–environment interactions of soybean.

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.
