Columbia has connecting flights from St. Louis via Transworld Express, but
has no air connections from Kansas City.  Tiger Air Express (1-800-333-3026)
offers van shuttle service hourly from St. Louis Lambert and three times a
day from Kansas City International Airport at reasonable prices.  Last
departure from St. Louis is 9:30 p.m.; from Kansas City, 9:30 p.m.  There is
an express Greyhound service from St. Louis Lambert Airport to Columbia.
Contact your local travel agent or Tiger Air Express for current schedules.

The Interdisciplinary Plant Group at the University of Missouri-Columbia is
hosting its annual symposium on selected topics in Plant
Biochemistry-Molecular Biology-Physiology.  The Interdisciplinary Plant
Group was organized to facilitate research and training through
interdisciplinary and cooperative approaches to questions in Plant Biology.
A key objective of this group is to maintain an awareness of advances in
research and techniques in these areas.  This  Symposium is one means of
meeting this objective.

If you have any disability that requires special materials or services,
contact Sue Brouk  573/882-9552 or TDD 573/882-4349.

Poster presentations in any area of Plant Biochemistry-Physiology-Molecular
Biology are invited.  Posters will be exhibited throughout the Symposium.
Abstracts, not longer than one page (one-inch margins on all sides), of
poster presentations must be received by March 29, 1999* to be included in
the program.  Poster space will be limited to 4' x 4'.  Poster abstracts
should be sent to Doug Randall, Biochemistry Department, 117 Schweitzer
Hall,  MU,  Columbia,  MO 65211.   Abstracts may be submitted as  a printed
copy to:  RandallD at   Posters may be presented without prior
submission of an abstract; however, remaining space will be assigned on a
first-come, first-serve basis.   Abstracts of all posters received by March
1st will be published in the Symposium Program.  A $100 award will be given
for most outstanding poster presentation by a student.

BY FEBRUARY 3, 1999.
