Comparative Genomics of Plants
Organizer(s): Richard B. Flavell and Robert Martienssen
Date: March 04 - 09, 2004
Location: Sagebrush Inn & Suites, Taos, NM, USA
Supported by Keystone Symposia
Summary of Meeting:
Upon completion of this conference, participants should be able to: - Know the latest results from the sequencing and comparative mapping of the chromosomes of dicot species and monocot species that are advancing rapidly and revolutionizing genetics and plant breeding - Understand the key mechanisms that have given rise to the similarities and differences within and between species' genomes - Understand the consequences of variation in genome sizes, gene families and the exploitation of sequence polymorphisms in plant breeding programs - Know the latest results in epigenetic variation during plant development and its consequences - Appreciate how combinations of a plethora of kinds of mutations, genetic drift and selection have given rise to today's plant genomes and species - See how the comparative biological approaches within and between species give additional insight into genome structure, evolution and function. - Design new research approaches to address questions in genetics, evolution and gene function using comparative genomics
Discounted Abstract Deadline: November 3 2003
