Plant Cell Biology

A section of Plants (ISSN 2223-7747).

Section Information

The Plant Cell Biology Section publishes timely research in various formats: original articles, reviews, protocols, meeting reports, and commentaries/opinion pieces on novel research. The primary criteria for publication is the novelty and significance of the research on plants for the broader scientific community. All papers are open access and first decisions are reached in around 15 days. We particularly encourage submissions from early career researchers (new PIs and post-doctorals) as lead authors aiming to support their transition to independency. Our Section covers a broad range of topics within the cell biology area and their impact across multiple scales (from molecules to cells, tissues, organs and in plant physiology, anatomy, responses, etc.).

We welcome papers with a fundamental or an applied focus, using both model or non-model organisms. We are particularly interested in multidisciplinary approaches, connecting physics, mathematics, or computational approaches (system biology) applied to understand processes at the cellular level and their connections with whole organs, organism behaviors, and multi-organism interactions. Proposals for Special Issues of particular scientific interest will be also considered.

In particular, but not exclusively, this Section invites contributions that report on:

  • Plant cell structures and function;
  • Molecular processes underpinning cell function;
  • Cell-to-cell communication and intercellular signaling;
  • Inter-organelle communication and intracellular signaling;
  • Cell biophysics and biomechanics;
  • Cell biochemistry;
  • Engineering cellular organelles and structures;
  • Environmental factors and signaling pathways affecting cellular functions;
  • Evolution and adaptations of cellular structures and functions;
  • Cellular processes in plant–microbe interactions;
  • Engineering a plant cell and their processes;
  • Synthetic biology approaches; and
  • Computational approaches to study cell function, development, and behavior in response to environmental cues
