Call for Special Issue: Regulatory Mechanisms for Improving Cereal Seed Quality. Topic Editor: Vincenzo Rossi

Call for Special Issue of Frontiers in Plant Sciences

The Research Topic will provide an overview of recent and innovative findings regarding different aspects of cereal seed quality, with a particular emphasis on the mechanisms regulating seed composition. Accordingly, we aim to collect original research manuscripts, methods papers, systematic reviews, mini-review perspectives, and opinions that focus on but are not limited to the following themes:

• Functional characterization of new cereal seed quality regulators and mechanisms.
• Bioinformatics and modelling approaches elucidating the regulatory networks operating during seed development.
• Exploration and exploitation of natural genetic and epigenetic diversity associated with cereals seed quality.
• New technologies for targeting genome editing addressed to cereal seed quality improvement.
• Critical overviews about past, present, and future of cereals seed quality.

Deadline December 2021
