The advances in high-throughput experimental techniques have permeated Life Sciences. Among these, different aspects of plant biology are most prominent, turning Life Sciences into data-intensive disciplines. This is particularly evident in genomics linked to the development of so-called next generation sequencing (NGS), which have resulted in a dramatic increase on the number of plant genomes being sequenced but also in the development of genome-wide protein networks, transcriptome profiling, and other related -omic technologies. Closely related to that has been the growth of Bioinformatics, resulting in the development of novel tools, databases, and other resources required to analyze the ever-increasing volume of available data.
In this Special Issue, we aim at presenting recent advances in the field of Plant Bioinformatics. From studies on the sequencing and annotation of genomic data to the study of molecular processes using transcriptome-wide profiling studies and to the linking of genetic variants to plant traits, as well as plant phenotyping and new high-throughput approaches to analyze and integrate data, we aim at presenting novel computational tools and resources to manage, analyze and visualize -omic data. Finally, robust data analytics pipelines for descriptive and predictive modeling are also a focus for this Special Issue.

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. Plants is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1800 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.
