Dear Plant Genomics Colleague:

The Plant Genome is an international open-access electronic journal published by the Crop Science Society of America. The goal of The Plant Genome is to provide the readership with a short submission-to-online publication of the latest advances and breakthroughs in plant genomics research.

The Plant Genome publishes original research investigating all aspects of plant genomics. Technical breakthroughs reporting improvements in the efficiency and speed of acquiring and interpreting plant genomics data are welcome. The editorial board will give preference to novel reports that use innovative genomic applications that advance our understanding of plant biology and that may have applications to crop improvement. The journal also publishes invited review articles and perspectives that offer insight and commentary on recent advances in genomics and their potential for agronomic improvement.

The first issue of the journal was published in July 2008 and is available at

Our next issue will be available in Novemeber 2008.

For more information on The Plant Genome, including instructions to authors and the editorial board, please go to The Plant Genome<http://plantgenome.scijournals.org/>.

We look forward to receiving your manuscripts for publication in The Plant Genome.
