DOE/NSF/USDA is sponsoring an Advanced Plant Biochemistry Course to be
held at Washington State University, Pullman, WA from July 11-24, 1999.
For more information about registration, see
http://www.wsu.edu:8080/~ibc/pbrtc/99biochem.html or contact Karen
Maertens at maertens at mail.wsu.edu

The course is fairly inexpensive and is an excellent review of topics in
plant biochemistry for faculty wishing to update their lectures and for
graduate students, postdocs, industrial scientists wanting an overview of
this field.

The 1997 course included lectures by a number of outstanding plant
scientists (listed below).  A list for the 1999 course should be available
early next year.
