2018 Plant Molecular Biology Gordon Research Conference and Seminar

Monday, April 2, 2018

Application Information

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 13, 2018. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline.

Conference Description

The theme of the 2018 Plant Molecular Biology GRC is "Dynamic Plant Systems". At this meeting, we aim to foster interactions in this emerging new field - plant system dynamics. Our goal is to spark discussions and collaborations across different scales of time (minutes, hours, days, years) - and across different levels of inquiry - from epigenetic and transcription dynamics, to dynamics of cell biological and developmental processes, to whole plant physiology and evolutionary dynamics. Our program will bring together thought-leaders in this new and emerging field of plant system dynamics that span PIs, post-docs and students.
