Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The market for fruit and vegetables has been growing consistently. However, after harvest, commodities remain metabolically active and undergo ripening and senescence processes, compromising fruit quality. Furthermore, in some cases, postharvest handling is limited due to the susceptibility of fruit and vegetables to developing postharvest diseases, injuries, and disorders during storage. Research in this field could contribute to minimizing waste and postharvest losses, which is a huge challenge that must be addressed urgently. In this sense, deep knowledge of the molecular mechanisms implicated in the postharvest processes could help to improve postharvest technologies for controlling physiological changes. Different works have been focused on the analysis of independent genes. However, in recent years, gene expression microarray has provided the potential for gene-expression studies during postharvest. More recently, RNA-seq in combination with bioinformatics analysis have emerged as state-of-the-art techniques for global transcriptome analysis; they are used to investigate the molecular regulatory networks underlying the responses of fruit and vegetables during postharvest storage.

This Special Issue will shed light on the molecular mechanisms related to fruit and vegetable crop quality during postharvest. We warmly welcome submissions, including original research papers and reviews, on this topic.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
