High resolution microscopy can now provide detailed insights into tissue and cell structure. Omics technologies, such as genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, can generate vast amounts of data at a molecular level. Novel approaches permit the real-time monitoring of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), the untargeted localization of molecules by mass imaging, and the high-throughput sequencing of microbial communities.
This Special Issue invites the submission of manuscripts that report original methods for analyzing plants and algae, ideally in their natural context. Further, novel applications, for example, in plant phenotyping and breeding and software for data mining and integration, are welcome.
Submissions are welcome to both _PeerJ – the Life & Environment journal_ and _PeerJ Analytical Chemistry._
