OBM Genetics is an international Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. It accepts papers addressing basic and medical aspects of genetics and epigenetics and also ethical, legal and social issues. Coverage includes clinical, developmental, diagnostic, evolutionary, genomic, mitochondrial, molecular, oncological, population and reproductive aspects. It publishes research articles, reviews, communications and technical notes, etc. There is no restriction on the length of the papers and we encourage scientists to publish their results in as much detail as possible.
Archiving: full-text archived in CLOCKSS.
Rapid publication: manuscripts are undertaken in 15.0 days from acceptance to publication (median values for papers published in this journal in the second half of 2021, 1-2 days of FREE language polishing time is also included in this period).

About This Topic
The new achievements in Molecular Genetics and the resulted new fields of Biology like Genomics offer new possibilities in producing new crop cultivars. DNA sequencing enables direct selection of important agronomic genes and resulted in the current approach of Molecular Breeding. The present special issue is focused on the new achievements of Genetics and Genomics and their applications in Molecular Breeding especially on breeding for abiotic stress (i. e. salinity, draught, heat) since abiotic stress is the major problem of modern agriculture. For this, we invite Colleagues working in the field to submit research articles related to the Genetics and Genomics of abiotic stress in plants, identification of involved genes, and breeding for stress resistance by traditional and molecular approaches.

Maize is consumed as a food and used as an industrial product in the form of starch, pharmaceuticals, alcoholic beverages, oil, cosmetics, and textiles. In ancient times, landraces were more popular due to the presence of high genetic variability, resistance to biotic and abiotic factors, and the heterogeneous nature of maize; however, it [...]
