About the Journal

International Journal of Plant Biotechnology [2456-0162(e)] is a peer-reviewed hybrid open-access journal launched in 2015 that covers all the topics of plant biotechnology, including plant physiology to plant tissue culture from manipulation of plants to production of secondary metabolites under abiotic and biotic stress. Journal publishes recent advancements in the form of original research articles and review papers.
