		ANNOUNCEMENT  (Reminder)

Keystone Symposium:  The Extracellular Matrix of Plants: Molecular,
			Cellular and Developmental Biology

Tamarron, Colorado.  March 15-21, 1996

The goal of this meeting is to provide a comprehensive overview of the =

status of current research on the extracellular matrix of plants and to =

stimulate participants to think about plant cell walls in novel ways.  =
The 
scheduled sessions include those on structural studies of the major 
macromolecules that make up the plant extracellular matrix 
(polysaccharides, proteins, lignin), biosynthesis of wall macromolecules,=
 
roles of the extracellular matrix in plant development and in interaction=
s with 
sybiotic and pathogenic organisms, and the importance of plant cell walls=
 in 
food and industry.  In addition, a workshop on chaperonins is currently =

being planned.  A brief overview of the program and speaker list follows.=
  
Additional speakers for short talks will be selected from the submitted =

abstracts.

Keynote Address:  John Lowe, "Design and properties of glycosyl-
				transferases
