In Celebration of 75 Years of Plant Physiology, A Special Plenary
Symposium:"Plant Physiology 2000 and Beyond: Breaking the Mold"
Monday, July 23, 2001, at 8:00 a.m.
This symposium will be a highlight of the ASPP meeting in Providence,
Rhode Island (July 21-25, 2001). The Symposium will feature a variety
of topics ranging from the whole plant to plant pathology, genomes,
and signal transduction. Topics were selected to showcase the breadth
and excellence of Plant Physiology. The speakers, all of whom are
members of the Plant Physiology Editorial Board, will present broad
views and implications of their respective areas of science. We hope
that you will be able to attend this anniversary celebration,
organized by Natasha Raikhel. Symposium speakers have offered the
following tentative titles:
Frederick Ausubel, "Molecular genetics of host-pathogen interactions"
Vicki Chandler, "Epigenetic control of gene regulation "
Karl Oparka, "Phloem transport and unloading of systemic
macromolecules and signals"
Susan Wessler, "Recent and massive restructuring of grass genomes by
Joanne Chory, "Light, brassinosteroids, and Arabidopsis development"
1. ASPP invites all who attend the Symposium to a reception
immediately following the Symposium.
2. A special section of Conceptual Breakthroughs in Plant Biology,
comprising 42 solicited articles, will be published in the
Anniversary Issue of Plant Physiology in January 2001; these will be
published together as a separate book, which will be available for
sale during the reception at $25.00 each. This is a very nice gift
for anyone who cares about plant biology!
3. During 2000 and 2001, Plant Physiology has published and will
continue to publish several articles in the Editor's Choice section
devoted to GMO, Biotechnology, food, and ecology issues. We have
solicited these articles from eminent scientists with the idea of
demonstrating clearly where Plant Physiology stands on these issues
and providing our readership with ample resources to educate
themselves and others. These articles, too, will be bound together in
a booklet called "Genetically Modified Crops: What do the Scientists
Say?" This volume will also be available during the reception at
The Editorial Board of Plant Physiology hope very much that all of
you will mark your calendars and plan to attend our 75th Anniversary
Symposium. We are very much looking forward to seeing you there.
