Receptors and Signaling in Plant Development and Biotic Interactions
Organizer(s): Thomas Boller and Jen Sheen
Date: March 14 - 19, 2010
Location: Granlibakken Tahoe, Tahoe City, CA, USA
Supported by The Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Analyses of plant genomes have revealed an immense number of genes encoding putative receptors, e.g., in Arabidopsis, about 600 receptor-like kinases and 700 F-Box proteins. Although the function of a few of them has been firmly established in the perception and transduction of endogenous or exogenous signals, most of them are currently “orphan receptors” in quest of ligands and functions. In this meeting, leading scientists from the fields of plant development and plant biotic interactions join to present exciting new insights into the structure and function of known plant receptors and to approach ways to unravel the ligands and functions of the plant “orphan receptors” and signaling mechanisms.
