2001 Plant Biochemistry Summer Course 
July 8-21, 2001 
Washington State University, Pullman, WA 

Funds are still available to offset travel expenses for participants 
from the USA.

The DOE/NSF/USDA Triagency supported Plant Biochemistry Research and 
Training Center at Washington State University will conduct a training 
course in plant biochemistry July 8-21, 2001.  The course is intended 
for graduate students, postdoctorals, faculty, and industrial 
scientists, and will include instruction by approximately 40 
internationally-recognized plant scientists (see below). For further 
information and an application form, see or contact Ms. Karen 
Maertens, PBRTC, Institute of Biological Chemistry, 285 Clark Hall, P.O. 
Box 646340, Washington State University, Pullman, WA 99164-6340; 
telephone 509-335-5496; fax 509-335-7643; or at maertens at

The course is designed to teach fundamental principles and recent 
advances in areas including structure-function of plant organelles; ion 
transport; photosynthesis; carbohydrate and lipid biosynthesis and 
metabolism; nitrogen fixation and amino acid metabolism; synthesis, 
catabolism, physiology and mechanisms of plant hormones; synthesis and 
catabolism of unique plant products such as terpenoids, alkaloids, 
cyanoglucosides; phenylpropanoids; signaling mechanisms in plant defense 
responses; metabolic regulation; protein synthesis and intracellular 
targeting of macromolecules.
