As part of evolution, domestication has enabled wild plants and animals to be cultivated and consumed. This domestication occurred spontaneously or by humans, to adapt to a new environment. As a result, plants have developed new traits, such as bigger branches, bigger and sweeter fruits, etc., in which many transcription factors have a major role. When, where, and how most horticultural crops are domesticated today is being elucidated by the combination of different disciplines: archaeobotany, breeding, biochemistry, bioinformatics, physiology, molecular biology, etc.
We welcome submissions on topics including (but not limited to): (1) domestication of plants; (2) transcription factors involved in important traits, such as dormancy, flowering time, fruit development; and (3) decision support tools and modeling.

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 papers will be 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. Agronomy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
