This Special Issue is the continuation of our previous special issue "Signal Transduction Pathways in Plants for Resistance Against Plant Pathogens".
Pathogens could severely limit plant growth and hence pose a severe threat to crop productivity. The co-evolutionary war between plants and their pathogens has led to the development of complex signaling systems in plants, enabling them to sense the presence of both compatible and incompatible pathogens and trigger their defense systems precisely and promptly. This Special Issue explores the signal transduction pathways in plants that led to resistance against pathogens, including, but not limited to, functional analysis of qualitative and quantitation resistance genes, defense mechanisms, plant-pathogen interactions, and signal transduction crosstalk.

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.
