Compartimos información de un nuevo special issue en semillas y epigenética del journal Genes, más detalles a continuación.
Special Issue information.
The seed is an important plant organ that is of enormous economic significance for agriculture. The ploidy and origin of its three tissues (i.e., embryo, endosperm, and seed coat) differ, making seed development a unique and complex process with an important epigenetic regulatory component. Recently, with the rapid increase of knowledge regarding the epigenetic mechanisms in model species and with high-throughput technologies providing access to the nucleotide sequences of novel plant genomes, it is timely to propose this Special Issue containing state-of-the-art works to better understand how epigenetic regulation participates in seed development, maturation, and germination from developmental, environmental, and evolutionary perspectives.
Therefore, we are inviting authors to send review and original research articles on this specific topic before 30 June 2021. If you are interested, please send us a statement of intent with a short abstract as soon as possible. The complete Issue will be published in late 2021 (but your article will be online shortly after it is accepted), and your article will be widely promoted online and at international conferences in order to guarantee the maximal visibility of your work.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Genes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
