Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Plant tissue culture is a foundational tool that has facilitated core discoveries in plant biology as well as the application of biotechnologies for crop improvement. It is commonly used for mass-propagation of crops and more recently for innovating plants as bioreactors. Tissue culture is also central to the ex situ preservation of recalcitrant species that cannot be seed-banked. More and more, tissue culture technology is being innovated for difficult plant species including high value tree crops in order to support crop improvement, germplasm conservation and propagation for industry growth and sustainability. However, for many species, tissue culture remains a significant research and development bottleneck.

In this forthcoming Special Issue we aim to explore recent advances and applications of plant tissue culture. We welcome both critical reviews of literature as well as original research of either descriptive or applied nature. A wide range of topics will be considered including propagation, in vitro speed breeding, mutagenesis breeding, gene editing and transformation, cryopreservation, bioreactor innovations, protoplast and doubled haploid production and more. As the world faces increasing challenges for plant and crop production, new innovations in plant tissue culture will have an important role to play in supporting more sustainable, productive and closed-loop production systems.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Plants is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
