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 8.5 days from acceptance to publication (median values for papers published in this journal in the first half of 2019, 1-2 days of FREE language polishing time is also included in this period).

About This Topic

Plants are important sources of human foods, animal feeds, pharmaceutical and other industries. Plants are also a chain of biosphere ecology, up-taking carbon dioxide and produce oxygen during photosynthesis. How we manage with genetics and gene analysis in plants? Plants are so differ from other living organisms with a lot of genetic specificities and unique gene structures and functions. However, the genetic principles remain the same as in human or other organisms.

The aim of the Special Issue is to show current status of our knowledge and research in plant genetics and gene analysis. The scope is covering wide and diverse scale of modern technologies, scientific approaches and research to understand better all aspects of genetics in plants including crops, native and commercially important plant species. Completed study and research in any aspect of plant genetics and gene analysis are encourages to be submitted to the Special Issue and we especially welcome multidisciplinary scientific papers, Reviews and Mini-reviews making clear and wider our views of the topic.

Title: Genetics and Germplasm – Why Science Could Not Save Nikolai Vavilov
Author: Joel I. Cohen
Abstract: In 1914, Nikolai Vavilov returned to Russia following studies conducted with the botanist, William Bateson, who would be the person to coin the term “genetics.” His lab was already conducting research that independently verified the laws of genetics established by Gregor Mendel. Vavilov returned to Russia with this experience and excitement in the application of genetics for the modification and improvement of plants. Upon his return, he would meet with Lenin and remake many institutional, breeding, and agronomic objectives consistent with his recent experiences and with his underlying goal: to combat famine, et al.

Title: Genetic Stability, Inheritance Patterns and Expression Stability in Transgenic Crops
Authors: Laura S Privalle, et al.

Genomic Analysis for Citrus Disease Detection

Received: 26 October 2020;  Published: 18 February 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2101124

Abstract

Citrus is an important group of globally produced fruit crops, holding great economic, cultural, and health value. Belonging to the Rutacaeae family, the genus Citrus includes some of the most iconic and widely appreciated variants of fruits such as the orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit, and tangerine [...]

Genetic Stability, Inheritance Patterns and Expression Stability in Biotech Crops

Received: 11 September 2020;  Published: 02 December 2020;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2004120

Abstract

Demonstration of the stability of traits newly introduced into a plant genome via genetic engineering approaches comprise a significant portion of the safety assessment that these products undergo prior to receiving the requisite regulatory approvals enabling commercial authorization. Different regi [...]
