GGE Biplot Analysis

“GGE biplot” was originally proposed for analyzing genotype by environment data for a trait. Later it is evolved to analyze other types of two-way data, such as genotype by trait data, genotype by pathogen data, QTL by environment data, etc. This special issue aims to bring together articles showing research results on any use of biplot in plant breeding or agronomic studies. We encourage authors, as users of biplot analysis, to show the community how you think of this method in addressing your research problems and what are the pros and cons.

Virtual Special Issue (VSI) is a collection of papers centered around a specific topic, led by an expert (Guest Editor) in the field. Virtual Special Issues are an important component of our journal and cover current hot topics within the scope of the journal.

All papers belonging to a Virtual Special Issue will be gathered together on a single webpage. They are published in the regular issues of the journal as soon as publishable, and labeled as belonging to the Virtual Special Issue. A link from each paper will take you to the Virtual Special Issue website.

Submissions to Virtual Special Issues will undergo the same rigorous peer-review process as regular papers submitted to the journal.
