Plant Genes, Genomes and Genetics takes into account various dimensions of plants genes and genomes along with the brief description on breeding systems in plants. It includes the meaning of genetic and physiological control in plants, plant genotype and clonal breeding in plants. Provide the reader with the insights into the development of genetics and genomes amongst plants, so as to understand those situations referring to when and how plants operate differently from other organisms.

Carlos Tello (Valencia, Spain, 1981) studied Agricultural Engineering with specialization in Biotechnology at the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia, where he graduated with a BSc thesis on the characterization of an Arabidopsis mutant with increased tolerance to seed ageing and salt stress. He moved afterwards to Sevilla to complete his MSc and PhD at the Instituto de Recursos Naturales y Agrobiologia, where he studied the mechanisms employed by plants in their adaptation to abiotic stress and more specifically the role of the Arabidopsis Na+/H+ antiporter SOS1 in the regulation of Na+ and K+ homeostasis. Since 2014, he is based in Zurich and develops several freelance science-related jobs. He has recently retrained himself in the field of cell culture in bioreactors by attending an advanced training course at the Zurcher Hochschule fur Angewandte Wissenschaften.
