About this Research Topic
Given the perspective of transcriptional regulation and posttranslational modifications, it remains a challenge to decipher the molecular mechanisms of plant growth and development against abiotic stresses. This Research Topic aims to bring together researches that reveal the molecular processes by which transcriptional control and posttranslational modifications interact with endogenous and external stimuli to influence plant development. Together with functional analyses and/or omics research, we expect to gain a better understanding of how these alterations play a role in controlling plant root, leaf, and flower growth, as well as developmental phase transitions related to organ formation. This research topic will cover a wide spectrum of studies on plant development, transcriptional regulation, and posttranslational modifications, especially in abiotic stresses. We welcome contributions linked to transcriptional regulation and posttranslational modification research in plant growth and development under abiotic stresses, article types include Original Research, Methods, Hypothesis & Theory, Review, Mini Review, Perspective, or Opinion.
This collection embraces, but is not limited to, the subtopics listed below:
1. Identification or functional investigation of transcriptional, posttranscriptional, or additional genetic/epigenetic regulators in plants using omics or other biological approaches
2. Transcriptional regulations and posttranslational modifications in response to endogenous and external signals to control plant growth and development.
3. Posttranslational effects and their genetic modifications to improve plant growth and development under abiotic stresses
4. Molecular response mechanisms involved in abiotic stresses or growth and development in plants
5. Analysis of plant improvement activities, such as breeding and genetic engineering, etc., using the genomics or omics approaches
Keywords: Transcriptional regulation, Posttranslational modifications, Plant growth, Plant development
