Summary of Meeting:
In recent years, enormous progress has been made in the cellular understanding of basic processes in plant cells. Many new findings, such as the asymmetric localization of auxin transport proteins, were very instrumental in explaining numerous aspects of plant morphology and physiology. The aim of this meeting is to bring together outstanding plant cell biologists in order to discuss the latest developments in our understanding of the composition and function of cellular structures and the biology of cellular process, in particular cell division, cytokinesis, cell polarity and cell morphology.
