Tue Apr 5 13:19:40 EST 1994

Dear members of the Arabidopis community,
Attached is a schedule of this summer's FASEB meeting to be held in Saxton's
River Vermont.  The idea this year was to catalyze interactions between
those working on plant cell biology and plant development.  We have left
some slots available for additional speakers to be chosen from submitted
abstracts.  Those interested in attending the meeting should contact the
FASEB offices directly at 9650 Rockville Pike, Bethesda MD 20814-3998; FAX
