About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims to collect selected contributions to INPPO 2018, the 3rd International Plant Proteomics Organization World Congress held in Padova, Italy, on 9th-12th September 2018.
The last century has seen a considerable transfer of knowledge and technologies initially developed in model plants move towards species of environmental, agronomic, and biotechnological interest. By complementing basic molecular and biochemical approaches, proteomics has enabled the description of a great number of proteins involved in plant growth and development, and their significance in adaptation to environmental stresses. This wealth of information has not only contributed to solving fundamental biological questions at a cellular level but has also stimulated the plant proteomic community to develop translational applications in all fields of plant biology, ranging from agroecology to food proteomics and conservation.
With this Research Topic, INPPO aspires to contribute further knowledge and advancement in this field by capturing current research, approaches, and opinions from the researchers gathering at the 3rd World INPPO Congress. Researchers from five continents will bring their personal experience and discuss the role of proteomics technologies in addressing critical challenges in plant biology.
Proteomic applications in fundamental plant biology (plant development, plant nutrition, plant adaptation to climate emergencies and responses to biotic factors), agriculture (crop sustainable production and selection of improved crops), as well as cellular and sub-cellular proteomics, plant organ proteomes, characterization of protein modifications, protein complexes and networking, innovations in mass spectrometry and new bioinformatic tools will be addressed in this Research Topic using both model and crop plants. Contributors are welcome to submit Original Research, Methods, Opinions, and Reviews related to all topics of the conference. Submission to this Research Topic is limited to the conference attendees.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
