Thematic Series


This collection is a Thematic Series of Journal of Cotton Research.

Edited by: Prof. Dr. Xiongming DU

Germplasm has always been the key resource for plant improvement and is becoming the bottleneck to encounter the challenges in revitalization of seed production industry. With the fast-evolving techniques and methods in the past decades, the studies towards identification, evaluation, construction, restoration, conservation and creation of cotton germplasm have gained many breakthroughs worldwide. This collection is focusing on new progress, achievement, methodology, standards, database, and software about cotton germplasm. Topics are included but not limited as follow:

  • Genomic/phenotypic structure analysis/evaluation of cotton germplasm
  • Techniques/methodology/database/software on collection, conservation and identification and improving of cotton germplasm on regional or worldwide scale.
  • Elite allele and related gene mining, gene regulatory network and functional genomic study 
  • Progress in breeding and utilization of germplasm resources in cotton
