In JPBP, our aim is to publish the most exciting novel research findings in different plant subjects related, but not limited, to biochemistry, physiology, structure, genetics, cell biology, functional biology, molecular biology, genomics and bioinformatics. Plant research at the cellular and molecular levels, and its interaction with various processes of photosynthesis, respiration, nutrition, plant hormones associated with plant morphology, ecology, microbes or environment, is welcomed. With the globe’s concern in plant science, Arabidopsis thaliana “pops-up” as a model for plant research. Although enormous amount of information was collected via this “weed”, several plants have also been recognized as model systems, including pea, maize, rice, tomato, etc. These model systems will improve our understanding of fundamental aspects of plant growth and development, hormone signaling pathways, disease resistance and abiotic stress responses. For example, Arabidopsis has been deployed to understand the molecular details of the plant-pathogen interaction to be used to design plant protection strategies to reduce yield loss in other host plant species.
