Ist Symposium on Signal Transduction During Plant Organogenesis
Print  |  Close    Text size:A  A  A

  

(The First Annoucement)      


    

 

Organized by:  Key Laboratory of Photosynthesis and Molecular Physiology, IB-CAS

        The Chinese Academy of Sciences

Secretariat:   Division of Scientific Exchange and Training, IB-CAS

 

Date: July 4th-5th, 2008

Place: Multi-Function Hall , Second Floor of the Administration Building, IB-CAS

 

Main Topic:

How a single-celled zygote develop to a multi-celled individual with complicated structure and function is a critical process in plant biology.  The scientific questions behind this process include how the organogenesis is regulated at cellular level, how organogenesis is initiated and maintained, how the tissue structure is built and precisely defined, how cell communicate with each other to coordinate those activities.  The First Symposium on Signal Transduction During Plant Organogenesis will discuss these issues at molecular, cellular and biochemical levels, to provide a state-of-the-art overview and prospective on this subject.  The speakers are among established experts in this exciting area. 

 

 

The Symposium opens to the researchers, university students, graduate students in relative units of the country. The registration fee is 500 Yuan for normal participants, and 200 Yuan for students. The maximum number of participants is 200 (first come, first serve, by the date of registration fee received).
