Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 13, 2018. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.

Meeting 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.

Related Meeting

This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Plant Molecular Biology" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
