Cell Cycle and Development
Organizer(s): Dirk Inze, Bruce A. Edgar and Jacqueline A. LeesDate: January 06 - 11, 2004
Location: Snowbird Resort, Snowbird, UT, USA
The basic cell cycle machinery is highly conserved in all multicellular organisms. Recent research in divergent model organisms addresses the exciting question of how cell cycle control is integrated with their respective and often very contrasting developmental programs. Many aspects of cell cycle control during development are also evolutionary conserved and as such scientists working on very different organisms can learn tremendously from each other. The meeting aims at answering the following questions: How is cell division coordinated during development of multicellular organisms? How do cells know when to start or stop division during development? How is cell number controlled during organogenesis? How are developmental cues integrated? What is the relationship between cell size and the cell cycle? The goal of the meeting is to bring together scientists studying cell cycle control during development of various model systems. Cell cycle research has traditionally benefited extensively from interactions between scientists working on different organisms and we believe that the meeting brings a timely forum to discuss the above exciting questions.
