Aims and Scope

Plant (ISSN Online: 2331-0677, ISSN Print: 2331-0669) aims to publish exciting, high quality science that addresses fundamental questions in plant science. Typically, the research will provide insight into an as yet unknown mechanism or poorly understood process, will constitute a highly significant contribution to our understanding of plants, and be of general interest to the plant science community. All areas of plant are welcome and the experimental approaches used can be wide-ranging and interdisciplinary. Many fully-sequenced genomes and related technologies are now available. PLANT welcomes functional genomics manuscripts when a scientific question, rather than the technology used, has driven the research.
