Special Issue "Functional Genomics and Molecular Genetics Studies on Plant Regulation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 October 2023 | Viewed by 3244
Plant growth, resistance, etc., is a very complex biological process that is affected by multiple influences of its own genome and complex environment. It is still difficult to understand how genotype and phenotype are related, and it is important to use genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic technologies and molecular genetics to reveal the role of genes and non-coding sequences in the regulation of plant growth and development. This study, entitled "Functional Genomics and Molecular Genetics Studies on Plant Regulation", aims to collect the latest research progress and update our knowledge on the genetic basis of plant functional genomics and molecular genetics in understanding plant complex traits and promoting genetic improvement of plants.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Regulation of non-coding RNA in transcriptomics;
- Omics analysis of agronomic traits, such as genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, etc.;
- GWAS and QTL mapping, map-based cloning of plant complex traits;
- Functional analysis and molecular mechanism of target genes;
- Genetic diversity and trait discovery;
- Application of gene editing in trait development and deployment.

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. Forests 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 2600 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.
