International experts to present at Plant Genetics 2003

ROCKVILLE, MD, February 7, 2003 -- The American Society of Plant Biologists has invited more than 20 international experts to speak during seven scientific symposia at its first specialist conference: Plant Genetics 2003, Mechanisms of Genetic Variation. The event, scheduled for October 22-26 at the Snowbird Resort & Conference Center, Snowbird, Utah, is expected to attract some 250 experts from around the world for three days of focused learning.

Symposia will be held during the evening and morning hours. Afternoons will be free for continued discussion - perhaps while exploring the diversity of plant life along miles of magnificent mountain trails at one of the west's loveliest mountain resorts. Pre-dinner poster sessions and mealtime socializing complete the schedule.

"What makes this conference somewhat unique is that all of the speakers will be around the entire time," says Sundaresan. "Some of the most valuable interaction at an event like this happens in between sessions, so we've consciously structured it to facilitate informal discussion and further exploration of the subject."

Minutes away from Salt Lake City, Snowbird is one of the country's loveliest mountain retreats. "We wanted a location that was secluded and peaceful, so that participants and speakers could spend as much time as possible focused on the subject at hand," comments the event's vice chair, Rich Jorgensen, University of Arizona.

"Snowbird is perfect. It's easy to get to yet self-contained enough that people w
