"Focus Issue on the Biology of Plant Genomes" open call for paper by "The Plant Cell"
Possible submissions: sequencing/analysis of plant genomes of particular interest, comparative genomics, genome evolution, advances in genome modification, epigenomics and genome-wide studies of chromatin, large-scale analyses of RNA in a genomic context, systems or synthetic biology on a genomic scale, or any of these topics as applied to plastid or mitochondrial genomes.
Submission date: 1st September 2020
“Crop digital information - sharing access and benefits” open call for papers by "Plants, People, Planet"
Crop diversity remains as valuable to global food security as ever. Yet information about this diversity seems to have become nearly as important as the seeds themselves. With the advent of high‐throughput DNA sequencing technologies and emerging “phenomic” approaches, and new platforms to store and explore the data they generate, the ways in which our global community can produce and access this information, and share the benefits of its use, is rapidly changing, creating a set of challenges that we will explore in a special collection of papers in Plants, People, Planet. Organised by Colin Khoury and Eric von Wettburg, this call seeks a range of contributions on this important topic including: Opinions, Historical Perspectives, Technical Reviews and Case Studies.
Submission date: 31st October 2020.
"Transport and Signaling" open call for papers by "Plant Physiology"
This Focus Issue will highlight the recent advances in our understanding of the molecular mechanisms behind membrane transport, its integration with signaling, and its roles in homeostasis. A selection of Update Reviews, included within the Issue, will address new and transformative insights that are driving research beyond the traditional boundaries of transport physiology. We encourage submissions that address quantitative frameworks in understanding membrane transport, transport proteins, and the integration of transport and signaling across scales.
Submission date: 3rd November 2020.
