Emerging role of non-coding RNAs in Plant Biology

Regulatory non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs), which can be short or long ncRNAs (lncRNAs), control a wide range of biological processes in plants. ncRNAs have evolved into a variety of forms, including microRNAs (miRNAs), small interfering RNAs (siRNAs), lncRNAs, circular RNAs (circRNAs), and derived ncRNAs, depending on their mode of biogenesis and function. Through interactions with homologous sequences, ncRNAs function as riboregulators to control plant development, growth, and stress response signalings. The insights about the roles of non-coding RNAs in plant biology might be of great importance to know precisely the regulatory pathways in different plant processes as well as for the development of genetically modified improved crop varieties through ncRNA manipulation.

For this Article Collection, the goal is to solicit submission of any articles to understand the regulatory roles of plant non-coding RNAs and their application in crop improvement. The subtopics are as follows:

  • Identification and functional characterization of microRNA, lncRNAs and other ncRNAs in plant.
  • NcRNA-based transgenic and biotechnology
  • CRISPR-based editing of plant ncRNAs
  • Computational tools for the functional analysis of plant ncRNAs
  • Plant ncRNA databases
  • Understanding the mechanistic roles of ncRNAs in plant stress response signaling
  • Novel techniques, methods, and ideas for analyzing plant ncRNAs
  • High throughput sequencing-based analysis of plant ncRNAs

Plant Signaling and Behavior accepts the following types of articles:

  • Research Articles
  • Review Articles
  • Short communications
  • Technical Reports
