Legume Science – special issue on Genomics

Guest Editors: Professor Timothy Close (Department of Botany & Plant Sciences, University of California, Riverside, USA) and Dr. Sateesh Kagale (National Research Council Canada, Saskatoon, Canada)

A special issue of the Wiley gold open-access journal Legume Science is planned for 2020. Devoted to Legume Genomics, this issue will be guest-edited by Professor Timothy Close and Dr. Sateesh Kagale. We look forward to receiving your contributions in the broad area of genomics as applied to legumes. As the journal covers all areas of Legume Science, we welcome papers on phylogenetic, ecological, nutritional, agronomic aspects of the subject in addition to the use of genome knowledge to provide biological insights and decisions related to germplasm management. We hope to receive articles in areas such as agroforestry and orphan crops. The scope of this issue will also cover new genomic and gene editing technologies and their application for legume crop improvement.

The issue will include original research articles and reviews. We also welcome papers that present new databases, tools and methods. The instructions for Legume Science authors, including details of article types, can be found at: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/page/journal/26396181/homepage/author-guidelines

Manuscripts should be submitted at: https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/legumescience

Please submit your manuscripts, indicating their destination for the Special Issue on Genomics, by the 31st of October 2020. The Guest Editors should be contacted for questions about the suitability of an envisaged manuscript (timothy.close@ucr.edu , Sateesh.Kagale@nrc-cnrc.gc.ca).
