Special Issue "Plant Molecular Breeding"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2022) | Viewed by 10591
Currently, plant breeding is carried out worldwide. The use of molecular genetics techniques makes this process more efficient, and that of molecular markers saves time and allows the successful separation of unnecessary breeding material. Studies of biodiversity, sex determination in dioecious crops in the juvenile period, as well as selection of parental pairs for crossing are greatly simplified by molecular methods. The application of modern genomics makes it possible to achieve high-quality results.
This Special Issue is devoted to the application of molecular genetics and genomics methods at any stages of the plant breeding process. Articles on the development of new molecular and cytogenetic markers, the sequencing of the genomes of agriculturally important plants, the analysis of valuable genes and DNA repeats in relation to plant breeding are invited. The submitted articles should present significant experimental results and be of interest to a wide range of readers.

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.
