An International Journal of Molecular Biology, Molecular Physiology, Genomics, Proteomics, and Metabolomics


The journal Plant Molecular Biology Reporter publishes new developments in plant molecular biology, molecular physiology, plant genetics and genomics, plant comparative transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics. The journal welcomes papers covering breakthrough technologies and discoveries in these areas, which will advance the knowledge base and methodologies.

Data and methods published in the journal should provide novel biological insights obtained with a reliable and validated dataset. As such, submissions with a preliminary observation, sequencing/transcriptome data only, and slight modifications to established protocols will not be considered for publication. Full ‘omics’ datasets must be made available to the scientific community. Review articles are also welcome and should cover developments in a field during the last 3-5 years and highlight novel conclusions.

Plant Molecular Biology Reporter invites submission of original full length articles, short research reports, reviews, and methods from the global community of scientists.

  • Publishes papers of interest to the international plant molecular biology community
  • Covers plant molecular biology, molecular physiology, plant genetics and genomics, plant comparative transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics
