FASEB meeting

Thu Jan 16 09:12:00 EST 1992

Meeting announcement of interest to
Arabidopsis enthusiasts

The program of this meeting is designed to bring together
molecular genetic work on plant biology,  especially on maize
and Arabidopsis.    The focus is on  development
(flowers, roots and embryos) and
signal transduction (hormone action, genetically
analyzed transcription factors, and disease resistance genes).
Transposons,  chromosome structure,  and
enigmatic genetics are also on the agenda.

Copper Mountain is a delightful location for such a meeting.
Attendance is limited to 150,  so apply early if interested.
