American Society of Plant Biologists Annual Meeting August 5-9 in Boston

Boston -- The American Society of Plant Biologists will meet jointly with the Canadian Society of Plant Physiologists at their annual meeting August 5-9, 2006 in the Hynes Convention Center, Boston.

Approximately 1,500 plant scientists from the United States and throughout the world will attend the annual meeting. The ASPB annual meeting program will feature symposia with presentations on exciting new advances in plant research.

The major symposium "Plants Mitigating Global Change" 4:20 p.m. August 5 will feature presentations on how plant research initiatives could dramatically reduce emissions of stored carbon dioxide into the atmosphere while at the same time meet the goals set by President Bush to transition to use of cellulosic ethanol in cars and trucks. Scientists making presentations in this symposium will discuss research conducted at the University of Illinois, Carnegie Institution, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, West Virginia University, Joint Genome Institute, University of Ghent, University of Tennessee, and The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation

A mini symposium on "Global Change" will also be held 2 p.m. August 7. Research findings presented will explain how corn crops acclimate to atmospheric carbon dioxide enrichment. Also in this mini symposium, a talk will explain studies on UV-B induced DNA damage in Antarctic mosses. The study demonstrates how "it's safer to be dry" protection is offered from plant dessication.

Molecular research findings on how plants learn to count the number of cold days to avoid blooming before a late winter frost will be presented during the ASPB President's Symposium on Plant Responses to the Environment, which will begin 2 p.m. Wednesday, August 9. This research conducted at the University of Wisconsin will give plant scientists tools for averting late-winter, early-spring crop freeze disasters. The symposium will also include a talk on the role of proteins and small regula
