Call for focus issue articles on miRNA/SiRNA
We are now inviting potential submissions for focus issue articles on miRNA/SiRNA. Click here for more information.
Here are some published recent virtual and special issues from the journal:
Special Issue: Metabolic Engineering
In this special issue, the editors bring together a selection of papers which highlight the importance of metabolic engineering to a wide range of applications within plant science.
Special Issue: Next Generation Sequencing Technologies
The last 5 years have seen a revolution in next-generation DNA sequencing, with plant researchers readily adopting the technology to decipher the structure and function of plant genomes. This special edition aims to capture the latest developments in plant biotechnology driven by advances in DNA sequencing technology.
This collection of papers is, in the PBJ editors' view, a convenient synthesis of what has been published in the field in recent years, and a useful working basis for what is to come next.
