Please distribute to others who may be interested:
*Cellulose synthesis, structure, matrix interactions and technology*
· An international conference at Penn State University, University
Park, PA, May 16-18, 2013,
· Hosted by the PSU Graduate Program in Plant Biology;
· Sponsored by the Center for Lignocellulose Structure and
Formation, a DOE-funded Energy Frontiers Research Center;
*This symposium focuses on the structure of cellulose in primary and
secondary cell walls, the mechanism of its synthesis and its interactions
with matrix polymers, and new uses for energy and material applications.
Disciplinary approaches range from molecular genetics, cell biology,
physical chemistry and plant physiology to material science, computational
biology, chemical engineering, bioinformatics and other ways of
understanding this most useful of materials. Registration will be limited
to ~150, so register early at *http://agsci.psu.edu/plant-bio.
Registration opens by February 15th.
