Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Plant production is essential to ensure global food security as seeds, fruits, leaves and tubers represent a major part of human and animal diets. The vast biodiversity of the plant kingdom has also proven key to identifying molecules of interest for cosmetics, healthcare, green chemistry, agriculture and environmental protection. Plant proteomics developed as a relevant tool to face current challenges, providing in-depth understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying plant responses to environmental constraints, including climate change. The transcriptional, post-transcriptional, translational and post-translational control of gene expression result in a highly dynamic proteome, which is closer to the plant phenotype than the fixed genome or the transcriptome. Recent studies highlighted the specificity and complexity of plant translational machinery and the importance of selective and sequential mRNA translation into proteins in both plant physiological transitions and response to the environment. The latest advances in proteomic data analyses also led to the emergence of multi-omics integration strategies. This Special Issue aims to outline current plant proteomic methodologies, highlight successful applications of proteomics in plant research, and discuss the challenges for future applications of systems biology approaches in plant sciences.

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. Proteomes is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 550 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.
