A comprehensive understanding of plant genomes with detailed and accurate analyses of associated gene expression is of crucial importance for both fundamental research and practical applications. Transcriptomics methodologies have developed considerably in the last decade, allowing analyses of expression in plants in response to environmental changes. This information is important for the investigation of the plethora of signaling pathways involved in the control of plant development and for the elucidation of the plant resilience capacity to fluctuating growth conditions. These studies are integrated with genetic approaches, leading to the identification of functional developmental modules. In this Special Issue, entitled “Transcriptomic Basis and Nutrient Dependent Signaling Pathways in Plant Development”, research contributions on plant gene expression profiles in different environmental conditions, as well as the functional characterization of genes involved in plant development, will be highlighted, with a particular enphasis on the mechanisms of plant responses to nutrient availability changes.

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.
