Due to their inherent complexity, analyzing only certain aspects of organisms is often insufficient for elucidating status, functions, and behavior. Modern technologies provide the opportunity to use holistic omics approaches to study living objects at the system level.
Plant systems biology has revolutionized our view on how plants grow, develop, and respond to the environment. Nowadays, the use of high-throughput genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics technologies combined with bioinformatics analysis and mathematical modeling allows us to take an in-depth look into the most intimate molecular mechanisms that govern a plant’s life. Plant systems biology together with plant biotechnology now give us endless opportunities to not only study the biological processes in a complex manner but also improve our utilization of plants as important sources of food and valuable metabolites.
This Special Issue will publish selected papers from scientists who attended the International Conference on Plant Systems Biology and Biotechnology 2020 (ICPSBB 2020). We encourage the submission of experimental articles, but review articles are also possible. Contributions will be initially screened by the Editors for suitability/quality and then sent for peer review.
The deadline for submissions to the ICPSBB 2020 Special Issue is 31 July 2021.

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. 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.
