Call for contributions to the Frontiers' article collection: Use of Barley and Wheat Reference Sequences: Downstream Applications in Breeding, Gene Isolation, GWAS and Evolution

Frontiers collection

The editors of the Frontiers Research Topic: “ Use of Barley and Wheat Reference Sequences: Downstream Applications in Breeding, Gene Isolation, GWAS and Evolution ” encourage the wheat community to submit articles to the collection.

Summary:

In this Research Topic, we aim to present efficient use of genetics and breeding methods in harnessing genetic resources of barley and wheat that promote the rapid improvement of cultivars. This themed article collection aims to cover all aspects of the use of two reference sequences i.e. the discovery and isolation of new genes, allele-mining, development of large-scale SNP genotyping platforms, integration of metabolomic, proteomic and phenomic data and platforms in trait discovery, GWAS, genomics breeding. Manuscripts that describe characterization and use of germplasm, wild relatives introgressions and resistance genes stocks i.e. Near Isogenic Lines (NILs) and Recombinant Inbreed Lines (RILs) are welcome for submission. Furthermore, articles describing the use of these two species in studying of related Triticeae crop species will also be considered. Construction and use of PanGenomes in the identification of orphans, genotypic specific genes, and deciphering of domestication genes are also welcome.

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 21 November 2018

Authors can choose to submit any article type considered for publication in Frontiers in Plant Science (Original Research, Review, Mini Review, Opinion, etc.). The publication fees are here .

Authors who submit a A-type article (Original Research and Reviews are the most common ones) get a 10% discount, if/when their manuscript is published within this article collection.
