Plant Biochemistry Course

Michael Kahn kahn at wsu.edu
Wed May 7 10:38:26 EST 1997


Although the application date has passed, there are still places available
in the DOE/NSF/USDA Advanced Plant Biochemistry Course to be held at
Washington State University, July 21-Aug 1.  For more information about
registration, see http://www.wsu.edu:8080/~ibc/pbrtc97biochem.html or
contact Karen Maertens at maertens at mail.wsu.edu

As these things go, the course is fairly inexpensive and is timed to lead
into the Plant Physiology metings in Vancouver at the beginning of August.

The course includes lectures by a number of outstanding plant scientists
listed below and is designed for advanced level graduate students,
technicians, postdocs, and faculty wanting to get a look at the current
state of aspects of plant biochemistry.
