Welcome to the 14th Annual Plant Biology Minisymposium.
The 14th Annual Plant Biology Minisymposium will be held on Thursday May 23rd at University of Maryland at College Park (approximately 8:30 am - 5:00 pm). All plant Biologists are invited to join us for this one-day meeting (faculty, students, postdoctoral and visiting fellows and anyone else with an interest). The speakers this year include many junior scientists who are breaking new ground with innovative techniques and approaches.
We encourage you to participate and submit abstracts for a poster presentation. Approximately six abstracts will be selected for a brief (3-5 min.) poster talk during the oral sessions. Opportunities for interactions and net-working are particularly facilitated in a meeting of this size.
