Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
Agricultural Biological Chemistry, a specialty section of Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems, publishes original, peer reviewed research on the biological chemistry of modern agriculture.
Interdisciplinary research in integrated and translational biology needs to be focused on solving problems in food security, nutrition and agricultural sustainability, given increasing population growth, problems of malnutrition and obesity, decreasing arable land, limited resources such as clean water, extensive use of chemicals in agriculture, and impending global climate change. Research studies on the principles that regulate plant biochemistry and physiology can provide the basis for developing food crops with enhanced nutritional quality and lower environmental impact.
The Agricultural Biological Chemistry section welcomes high quality and original contributions on agricultural chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, molecular biology, nutrients and natural products, interactions of crops with different environments/ecosystems and climatic conditions. Although the main focus will be on both major and minor crops, outstanding submissions on model plant systems with direct relevance to translational research are encouraged.
