Multi-Omics and Medicinal Plants
Medicinal plants face many challenges in terms of protection, sustainable utilization, and development. Therefore, multi-omics techniques (such as chloroplast genomics, mitochondrial genomics, transcriptomics, genomics, protein genomics, metabonomics and phenomics) are playing an increasingly important role in solving the key problems in the protection and utilization of medicinal plants.
The cytoplasmic genome, including the chloroplast genome and the mitochondrial genome, is a circular DNA molecular structure in terrestrial plants, which has the characteristics of parthenogenesis and no recombination, and is an important tool for studying the phylogeny, origin and differentiation of medicinal plants and genome evolution.
Genomics data such as genomics, protein genomics, and metabonomics provide strong data support for interpreting the material basis and functional activity of medicinal plants. Especially in revealing the genetic and molecular basis of important characters related to quality, yield, nutrition and environmental resistance of medicinal plants, and accelerating the innovation and genetic improvement of medicinal plant varieties.
Having comprehensive omics data plays an important role in enriching the genetic resources of medicinal plants and guiding the production practice of sustainable medicinal plants.
This Article Collection focuses on the articles covering the ethnology of traditional medicinal plants, including:
- Chloroplast genomes and molecular markers of medicinal plants
- Mitochondrial genomes and molecular markers of medicinal plants
- Transcriptome, proteins and metabolomics of medicinal plants.
- Genome and phenomics of medicinal plants
Mitochondrial DNA Part B accepts the following types of articles: Reviews, Methods, Protocols, Mitogenome and Plastome reports, and Rapid Communications. You can find out more on the journal’s Instructions for Authors.
