International Conference on Assimilate Transport and Partitioning: 
Integration of Structure, Physiology and Molecular Biology  

Sunday 15th - Friday 20th August 1999 in Newcastle, Australia  


The Conference is designed to emphasize the integrated roles of  
structure, physiology/biochemistry and molecular biology in the  
transport and partitioning of assimilated carbon and nitrogen in  
plants.  Single sessions of keynote addresses, offered papers and  
posters are planned covering topics from macromolecular  
trafficking, membrane carriers and source/sink regulation to whole  
plant partitioning. 

Two satellite workshops have been organized to accompany the  

Pre-Conference (11 – 13 August):  Carbon-11 and BAMS: Highly  
Sensitive Isotope Techniques:  Lower Hutt, New Zealand.   
Organizers Michael Thorpe and Peter Minchin. 

Post-Conference (22 –24 August):  Ecophysiology of Australian  
Native Plants:  Perth, Western Australia.  Organizer  Prof. John  

An interesting and varied programme of activities has been put  
together for accompanying persons, and pre- and post-conference  
tours are available.  

Registration $675, ($350 for students and retirees), late
