Abstract
  • The tumultuous events of 2020 have prompted many of us to reflect upon the forces that divide us, like pandemics and politics, as well as the commonalities that unite us, like our shared hope for a better future. Scientists often face a similar problem—when to lump or split the things they study. PLOS Genetics has decided that while plants (Fig 1) obey the same fundamental genetic principles as other organisms, their unique qualities, many of which are critically important to human health and welfare, merit special attention in the same way as our other sections: Cancer Genetics, Epigenetics, Evolution, Methods, Natural Variation, and Prokaryotic Genetics. To support this goal, we are creating a new Plant Genetics section for the journal that will be led by the inaugural Senior Editors Claudia Koehler and Li-Jia Qu.
