Meeting announcement: "Redoxins and related proteins"

Redoxin Meeting redoxin at ibp.u-psud.fr

Aussois, France, June 26 - 30, 2005

We are happy to invite you to participate to the meeting on Redoxins and 
related proteins which will be held June 26-30, 2005 in France. The website 
is now open for business: http://sakura.cpe.fr/redoxin. Deadline for Early 
registration is April, 15, 2005.

Thioredoxins were discovered more than 30 years ago. Since then, extensive 
work has been performed concerning the function of these small disulfide 
oxidoreductases which constitute a multigenic family in plants. The recent 
development of genomics and proteomics approaches allowed a unique 
breakthrough in the field, pointing to an increasing number of potential 
functions for thioredoxins but also giving rise to numerous questions. This 
meeting will provide a unique opportunity to discuss the latest 
developments in the Redoxin field, with a particular emphasis on plant 
studies. Attention will also be focused on other Redoxins, including 
Peroxiredoxins, Glutaredoxins and Sulphiredoxins. The meeting will be 
formatted in sessions devoted to specific topics, but without concurrent 
symposia, so that all participants can get a full coverage of the 
presentations. Sessions will include invited lectures from leading 
scientists in the field as well as presentations selected from submitted 
abstracts. Ample time will be devoted to poster presentations. Suggestions 
concerning the scientific program are most welcome.

A special session will be dedicated to Dr Myroslawa MIGINIAC-MASLOW on the 
occasion of her retirement.

The conference will be held in the "Centre Paul Langevin”, in Aussois, a 
small village of Savoie, in the French alps, with easy access from Paris, 
Lyon and Geneva.
