I encourage you to consider attending the symposium "Translational 
Seed Biology: From Model Systems to Crop Improvement" that will be 
held at the University of California, Davis on September 17-20, 2007. 
The major purpose of the symposium is to initiate a discussion 
between scientists who use model systems to gain fundamental 
information about the molecular, cellular and genetic processes 
controlling seed biology and scientists who seek to improve seeds for 
agricultural and commercial applications.  The symposium is organized 
into topical sessions covering many different aspects of seed 
biology, and we have received commitments from the top scientists in 
this research area to participate in the symposium.

Information about the symposium, including the program, abstract 
submission, and registration information is available at the 
symposium website at http://www.plantsciences.ucdavis.edu/seedsymposium2007/

Please note that the abstract submission deadline has been extended 
to August 15.

For scientific information, please contact Kent Bradford 
<kjbradford from ucdavis.edu> or John Harada <jjharada from ucdavis.edu>.  For 
organizational information, please contact Susan C. (Webster) 
DiTomaso <scwebster from ucdavis.edu>.

This symposium is sponsored by the UC Davis Plant Sciences 
Department, UC Davis College of Agricultural and Environmental 
Sciences, USDA-CSREES Regional Research Project W-1168, UC Davis 
Section of Plant Biology, International Society for Seed Science, 
NSF, USDA-NRI, and University of California Discovery Program.
