About This Topic

Medicinal plants have been an integral part of traditional medicine systems for centuries, offering a rich source of bioactive compounds with therapeutic potential. In recent years, advances in genomics and genetics have revolutionized our understanding of the molecular mechanisms behind the medicinal properties of plants. This special issue aims to explore the latest research trends, discoveries, and applications in the field of genomics and genetics of medicinal plants. By bringing together cutting-edge research in this area, we seek to deepen our knowledge of the genetic basis of bioactive compound production, plant adaptation to environmental stress, and the development of plant-based pharmaceuticals. Through this platform, we hope to facilitate collaboration among researchers and provide valuable insights for the sustainable utilization of medicinal plants for human health and well-being.
