About this Research Topic
Recent advancements in technology of genomics and related research areas, such as metabolomics, bioinformatics, comparative genomics, genome editing and molecular evolution, remarkably accelerate our understanding on the origin of plant chemodiversity. Furthermore, not only addressing curiosity-driven questions, through application of fundamental knowledges obtained, this research area could largely contribute to realize our sustainable society, which is recently aimed by United Nations as 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
This Research Topic will collect only invited articles by outstanding experts of this field. The contributed articles will cover conceptual discernment or empirical insights on the topic by selected expert authors. Therefore, though any types articles could be considered, we would encourage to contribute imaginative and insightful articles in the particular categories: Review, Mini Review, Hypothesis and Theory, and Original Research. Spontaneous submissions will not be considered.
