Plant Cell Signaling: In vivo and omics Approaches
Organizer(s): Sarah M. Assmann and Alan M. JonesDate: February 01 - 06, 2005
Location: Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza Hotel, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Much of the most exciting current research on cell signaling involves in vivo and large scale ('omic') techniques. In vivo techniques, especially those utilizing advanced GFP-based imaging methods, are being brought to bear on studies of signal transduction in 'real time' and 'in planta,' thus allowing never-before-seen glimpses into the functioning of living plant cells. At the same time, 'omic' techniques are providing us with overviews of the entire function of a cell or tissue at the levels of the genome, the transcriptome, the proteome, and the metabolome. This meeting will bring together leaders in cell signaling research, spanning the gamut from cell biologists who observe single cells, to genomicists uncovering whole-genome views of transcription, to mathematicians who seek to build testable models of cellular processes. Key signaling elements, including G proteins, hormonal signaling, and dynamic organization of the nucleus and cytoskeleton are some of the biological processes that are highlighted. Presentation of cutting-edge data and techniques, including a workshop on FRET methodology, and the Keystone Symposium format itself will promote discussion and collaboration among participants.
