Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Chloroplast 3.0
Chloroplasts are at the front line of many molecular biology advances, ranging from evolutionary biology to the mechanism of energy transduction, and also includes stress responses and programmed leaf death. In addition to the relevance of basic knowledge, advances are unveiling promising insights to improve plant productivity, disease resistance, and environmental control. The production of secondary metabolites and proteins by transformed chloroplasts add further excitement to applied investigations on chloroplasts.
Papers submitted to this Special Issue must report high novelty results and/or plausible and testable new models. The molecular basis of the conversion of light to chemical energy in photosystems is a reference topic. In addition, the structure and function of other components of the photosynthesis machinery, plastid genomic, plastid biogenesis and senescence, metabolism, reactive oxygen species and membrane transport are also of interest, with a special emphasis on the gene level and evolutionary comparisons. Significant advances on chloroplast transformation are also welcome.

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.
