Call for Papers: Special Issue on Crop Genetics and Breeding

Deadline for Paper Submission: June 30, 2017

Engineering is an international peer-reviewed academic journal sponsored by the Chinese Academy of Engineering. The journal is published on a bimonthly basis in English. Online versions are available through http://www.journals.elsevier.com/engineering/.

Breeding is a continuous practice to improve genetically the productivity of crops. Modern techniques, such as molecular genetics and genomics approaches, provide powerful tools to improve the efficiency of crop breeding. The special issue “Crop Genetics and Breeding” of Engineering seeks for leading researches and establishment of a forum for the discussion of recent progresses on crop genetics and breeding that integrate classical genetics, cytogenetics, molecular genetics, and genomics principles and techniques. This issue will publish original research papers and reviews including but not limited to the following fields:

Scope:

●  Crop Genetics

●  Cytology and Cytogenetics

●  Molecular Genetics

●  Genomics

●  Genes or QTL Mapping of Important Traits

●  Crop Genetic Resources

●  Germplasm Enhancement

●  Breeding Techniques

●  Marker Assisted Breeding

●  Transgenic Crop Breeding and Genetics

●  Genome Editing and Crop Improvement

Paper Length:

6 pages in general
