Abstract

Background: In the current –omics era plant volatilome has enormous potential in enhancing our understanding of plant growth, defense, and productivity.

Focus: Plant volatiles pose enormous challenges in their identification and functional assignment due their chemical complexities and associated analytical challenges.

Prospects: However, there have been efforts to develop databases, softwares, and webservers to allow accurate identification of these volatiles. In this highlight, I summarize the past and current efforts in such endeavors.

Keywords: Volatiles, plant, VOC, database, annotation, SPME, GC-MS.
