In recent years, omics approaches have offered an extraordinary opportunity to identify and measure a huge number of genes and proteins that play a crucial role in the regulation of several plant cellular processes. The availability of the entire genome from model plants, such as Arabidopsis thaliana and rice, lays the foundations for understanding and assigning functions to unknown genes, using different and multiparallel approaches. Indeed, comparative genome analysis is actually a powerful approach, which is useful in the identification of gene functions associated with plant metabolic processes and development. In this perspective, all the data derived from transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics studies allow the investigation of the intricate network of relationships between biomolecules within the plant system.
This Special Issue welcomes the submission of original research and review manuscripts focusing on plant functional genomic studies, including methods and developments that have made contributions to field development.

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. Biology 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 1800 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.
