Advanced Plant Biochemistry Course 1997
Washington State University.
Are you or any of your students interested?
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 20-August 1, 1997, targeted to faculty,
postdocs, advanced graduate students and others needing exposure to topics
at the state of the art in modern plant biochemistry. The course is
designed to teach fundamental principles as well as present the latest
advances in areas of plant biochemistry including taxonomy; transport;
photosynthesis; carbohydrate and lipid metabolism; nitrogen and amino acid
metabolism; biology of plant hormones; unique plant products such as
terpenoids, alkaloids, cyanoglucosides and phenylpropanoids; cell wall
synthesis; plant defense responses; metabolic regulation; protein
synthesis and intracellular targeting. Some funds have been allocated to
partially offset travel expenses for participants.
