Plant Molecular Biology is an international journal dedicated to rapid publication of original research in all areas of plant biology. Since its founding in 1981, it has continually ranked among the leading journals. Coverage addresses important biological problems of broad interest. Coverage includes research in comparative genomics, functional genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, computational biology, biochemical and regulatory networks, and biotechnology. Preference is given to publication of results that provide significant new insights into biological problems and that advance the understanding of structure, function, mechanisms, or regulation.

The Editor-in-Chief is Motoaki Seki, Plant Genomic Network Research Team, RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science, Yokohama, Japan
