You are invited to attend the seventh FASEB Summer Research Conference on
"Mechanisms in Plant Development" to be held August 12-17, 2000 at the
Vermont Academy in Saxtons River, Vermont.  The program of the conference
is detailed below and will focus on recent advances in many areas of plant
development, including evolution of developmental mechanisms and
epigenetics.  Formal sessions are limited to mornings and evenings so as to
encourage interactions among attendees. The conference will be limited to
165 participants, so we encourage you to apply early.

There will be two poster sessions and, based on abstract submissions,
presenters of selected posters will be invited to give short talks.

Applications to the conference can be made on-line at
