Recent developments in sequencing technology revolutionized molecular biology and had a big impact on plant science. Many genome sequencing projects have been completed generating an unprecedented amount of information. This information can shed light on how species evolved but also helps studying all aspects of plant life at a molecular level. As more and more crop species' genome is sequenced, translation of knowledge from model systems to crops become quicker and easier. This special issue will cover original research papers and reviews on the broad topic of plant genomes.Professor Tamas Dalmay
