Plant Systems and Synthetic Biology publishes works presenting a holistic view of the internal processes, and external cues that may modulate them, which ultimately determine plants’ characteristics; along with research applying such system-level understanding to forward-engineering plant traits.
Plant Systems and Synthetic Biology publishes works presenting a holistic view of the internal processes, and external cues that may modulate them, which ultimately determine plants’ phenotypic characteristics and environmental responses; along with applications of such system-level understanding to forward-engineering plant traits.
The section welcomes papers concerned with the use or interplay between computational, systems, and synthetic biology approaches to study plant function at all levels — from molecular biology and genetics to morphological, biochemical, electrophysiological, pharmacological, and imaging studies. While papers embracing computation are highly encouraged, those facilitating acquisition and/or databasing of information required for computation are also solicited.
While Plant Systems and Synthetic Biology is primarily centered on plant function, work on plant-environment interactions is also welcome. Work in all plant species and photosynthetic lifeforms is welcome, and integrative and translational approaches combining multiple molecular or organismal species are encouraged. Our ultimate goal is to accelerate progress in this research area at a critical time when we are facing important challenges in technical, experimental, theoretical, and computational disciplines, as well as the problems common to all multicellular species afforded by the additional complexities imposed by transport of nutrients and signals, and cellular differentiation.
