PLoS Biol. 2014 Jun 10;12(6):e1001880. doi: 10.1371/journal.pbio.1001880. eCollection 2014 Jun.


In this issue, we launch a new article collection "The Promise of Plant Translational Research," featuring articles from leading plant researchers and call for additional plant translational research to be submitted to PLOS Biology for inclusion in this collection. We also discuss in this Editorial why this field has a vital role to play in meeting the challenges of sustainably feeding a growing world population.
