About this Research Topic
Epigenetic mechanisms such as DNA methylation and chromatin alterations have a decisive function in regulating plant responses to the environment. The involvement of epigenetic mechanisms in the response to environmental cues has been documented. Understanding how epigenetic regulation is involved in plant response to environmental stress is highly desirable, not just for a better understanding of molecular mechanisms of plant stress response but also for possible application in the genetic manipulation of plants. The proposed topic is focused on epigenetic regulation of plant responses to the environment. We welcome all types of articles (original research, methods, opinions and reviews) that provide new insight into different aspects of plant epigenetics, including its regulation, its function in plant development and plant responses to abiotic and biotic stresses.
