Plant Hormones and Signaling
joint with Plant Innate Immunity
Organizer(s): Joanne Chory, Joseph R. Ecker and Mark A. Estelle
Date: February 10 - 15, 2008
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Supported by the Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Decades of molecular and physiological studies have demonstrated that plants rely on a diverse set of small molecule hormones to regulate every aspect of their biology. Very recently, the receptors for most plant hormones have been identified and signal transduction pathways leading to rapid changes in gene expression have been elucidated. The degree of specificity and redundancy among the various hormone pathways has long been a matter of debate. Because the major players in individual hormone signaling pathways are now known, plant scientists are in a unique position to determine how plant hormones work together or antagonistically to influence growth and development. Emerging evidence also suggests important connections between disease mechanisms and manipulation of hormone signaling pathways. This meeting brings together the leaders in phytohormone signaling and plant disease (in a parallel meeting entitled “Plant Innate Immunity”) to discuss their latest results and to determine what approaches are needed to answer the age-old question of how plants grow.
