Legume Genomics and Genetics (ISSN 1925-1580) is an open access and peer-reviewed journal that publishes original research papers in the fields of genomics and genetics of legume plants. Legume Genomics and Genetics, proposed by Dr Da Luo, a legume geneticist from Sun Yat-Sen University in China, is run by the Editorial Team of BioPublisher at British Columbia of Canada.


Legume Genomics and Genetics is commited to publishing grain/forage legume studies, as well as research on model legume plants such as Lotus japonicus and Medicago truncatula. The aims are to  feature innovative research findings in the basic and applied fields of legume biology. Topics include (but are not limited to) genome structure, genome-scale analysis, comparative and functional genomics, proteomics and epigenomics, gene discovery and function, gene expression and evolution, as well as legume genetics from the molecular level to whole plant level.
