Special Issue Information

Aim and Scope: Plants and microbes are at the forefront of plants and microbial science research and have shaped the way we approach the study and exploration of n  ew frontier bioresources research. With the increase in human population, it is also expected that industrial activities, including that based on plants and microbes and their bioproducts would increase, which in turn might require more recent insights on plants and microbes for improved bioproducts quality and efficiency. However, in-depth researches on plants and microbes are still limited. Keeping these in view, the frontier efforts are required for in  creasing utilization of its intervention in the agriculture, medical, pharmacological and industrial productivity and address the current demand and the future needs for improved plants and microbes-based process and technologies. Bioengineering advancement in plants and microbes at the molecular, physiological and ecological levels has improved our understanding of how plants and other microorganism’s structural and functional involvement for the sustainable development of tools, techniques and bioproducts. In this Research Topic on “Plants and Microbes: New Frontiers,” we encou  rage the participation of researchers that study broad and integrate current innovative approaches and effort to make significant advancement in bioresources by expanding information on a wide variety of topics.

We kindly invite you to submit a manuscript(s) for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.
