As a complex organism, research on the origin, evolution, development, physiology, and genetic traits of medicinal plants has shown strong development prospects for medicinal plant functional genomics. Functional genomics is a science based on genome sequence information, which uses various genomic techniques to organically link genome sequences with gene functions (including gene networks) and phenotypes at the system level and ultimately reveal the functions of biological systems at different levels in nature (genome, transcriptome, proteome, metabolome, epigenome, etc.). Research into the genomes, transcriptomes, and proteomes of medicinal plants provides a premise and basis for comprehensively analysing various life phenomena at the molecular level. Combined with metabolomic research, it greatly promotes the application of frontier life science and technology in the field of medicinal plants, lays the foundation for clarifying the synthesis and regulation of effective components of medicinal plants, and promotes research on the interaction between genetic and environmental factors of medicinal plants.
