2001 Plant Biochemistry Summer Course
July 8-21, 2001 
Washington State University, Pullman, WA

The DOE/NSF/USDA Triagency supported Plant Biochemistry Research and 
Training Center at Washington State University will conduct a training 
course in plant biochemistry July 8-21, 2001. The course is designed to 
teach fundamental principles and recent advances in areas including 
structure-function of plant organelles; ion transport; photosynthesis; 
carbohydrate and lipid biosynthesis and metabolism; nitrogen fixation 
and amino acid metabolism; synthesis, catabolism, physiology and 
mechanisms of plant hormones; synthesis and catabolism of unique plant 
products such as terpenoids, alkaloids, cyanoglucosides; 
phenylpropanoids; signaling mechanisms in plant defense responses; 
metabolic regulation; protein synthesis and intracellular targeting of 
macromolecules. The course is intended for graduate students, 
postdoctorals, faculty, and industrial scientists, and will include 
instruction by approximately 40 internationally-recognized plant 
scientists. Funds have been allocated to partially offset travel 
expenses for up to 65 participants. For further information and an
