Special Issue "Genome Editing in Plants"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 May 2019).
Interests: genome editing; small regulatory RNAs; molecular genetics; plant biotechnology; abiotic stress; gene expression and regulation
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Genome editing is becoming a powerful tool for gene functional study and also for improving plants for growth and development as well as tolerance to various abiotic and biotic stress. In the past a couple of years, as new Cas are identified and new bioinformatics tools have been developed; this field has been developing quickly. Currently, it has been widely used in many plant species not only for gene functional study but also for crop improvement. In this Special Issue, both reviews and research papers, as well as method and bioinformatics papers, are welcomed.

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.
