    Special Issue on Plant Genetics and Genomics


    Plant genetic engineering provides an opportunity to introduce traits such as pest and disease resistance, improved protein quality, and herbicide tolerance from previously unavailable sources. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of Plant Genetics and Genomics.


    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore Plant Genetics and Genomics. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:



    • Mechanisms of plant gene regulation
    • Phylogenomics and evolutionary plant genetics
    • Gene silencing and miRNAs
    • Epigenetics and epigenomics
    • Chromatin organization
    • Genetic engineering for crop production
    • Genetically modified crops
    • Computational analyses of genes and genomes



    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Plant Genetics and Genomics” should be selected during your submission.
